If you find yourself confused about the mixed guidance when it comes to Covid-19 vaccines and safety concerns, you’re not alone.

While the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is marketing widespread use of the vaccines in the U.S. for both old and young alike; many other countries have limited Covid-19 vaccine use under certain conditions. Health officials around the world are giving varying advice on safety issues as Covid-19 vaccines are given to more people, and more information is collected.

Summary by safety concern

General

Updated June 17, 2023: A study by Cleveland Clinic confirms “up to date” vaccinated people are at greater risk of getting Covid.

Updated Sept. 1, 2022: A study in the journal Vaccine finds: Excess risk of serious adverse events from Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines outweighs risks from Covid-19 itself. Pfizer vaccine: 36% higher risk of serious adverse events than placebo. Moderna: 6% higher. Combined: 16% higher.

In the UK, some scientists analyzed adverse event reports and called upon the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency to stop the Covid-19 vaccines as “not safe for human use” due to reports of issues with bleeding/clotting, pain, immune system, neurological, loss of sight/hearing/smell/speech, and questions about impact in pregnant women.

A petition of scientists led by Linda Wastila, Professor, Pharmaceutical Health Services Research University of Maryland School of Pharmacy is calling for Covid-19 vaccines to be disapproved.

Fifty-seven authors from 17 countries have signed an endorsement urging that Covid-19 vaccinations be stopped unless new safety mechanisms are immediately implemented.

The authors include Dr. Peter McCullough, cardiologist and former Vice Chief of Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, who has called for a halt to vaccinating 30-year olds due to “no clinical benefit” and safety concerns. [McCullough is currently Senior Professor of Internal Medicine at the Texas A&M University Health Sciences Center.]

Acute CNS Demyelination and Multiple Sclerosis

A new study in Journal of Neurology examines possible links between Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and acute Central Nervous System (CNS) demyelination, including Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Demyelinating diseases damage the protective covering surrounding nerve fibers in the brain, optic nerves and spinal cord, causing neurological problems. In the study, four patients had the Pfizer vaccine and three had the Moderna vaccine. Within 21 days of the first or second dose, the patients developed active CNS demyelination of the optic nerve, brain, and/or spinal cord leading to “visual loss, dysmetria, gait instability, paresthesias, sphincter disturbance, and limb weakness.”

Age ranged from 24 to 64 years old. Four patients were ultimately diagnoses with exacerbation of their stable MS.

Two were diagnosed with new cases of MS.

One was diagnosed with neuromyelitis optica.

Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE)

Updated (read more here). According to studies:

  • Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) can make vaccinated people more susceptible to serious infection from the virus
  • “ADE may be a concern” for those who have been vaccinated for Covid-19
  • With ADE, after people get vaccinated for an initial virus, infection by a subsequent variant or strain of the virus can result in “increased viral replication and more severe disease, leading to major safety risks”
  • ADE can also “occur when neutralizing antibodies (which bind the virus and stop it from causing infection) are present at low enough levels that they don’t protect against infection. Instead, they can form immune complexes with viral particles, which in turn leads to worse illness”
  • This concern was initially described by some scientists who were subsequently banned from media platforms that incorrectly claimed the scientists were disseminating disinformation

Appendicitis

Updated Sept. 9, 2021: The Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine was found to be associated with increased risk of appendicitis, according to a real-world case-control study from Israel.

Blood Clots and Blood Disorders

Updated Jan. 13, 2023: CDC announces safety signal in the vaccine data for stroke, but says it probably means nothing.

Updated Aug. 31, 2022: A Hong Kong study finds Pfizer vaccine carries increased risk of hemorrhragic stroke after Pfizer vaccine. The study authors say it’s still a benefit to get vaccinated, though, because the stroke rate among Covid patients is even higher. But that wrongly assumes vaccination prevents Covid. It also compares the wrong pools of patients. To look at true risk vs. benefit, the stroke rate should be compared between vaccinated people and all unvaccinated people– not just those with Covid.

Updated May 11, 2022: FDA limits use of Johnson & Johnson vaccine citing risk of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS): blood clots in combination with low levels of blood platelets.

Updated Jan. 20, 2022: The FDA has added a warning about immune thrombocytopenia, ITP, to Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.

Updated Dec. 17, 2021: CDC warns of risk of blood clots, Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), with Johnson & Johnson vaccine and recommends people get Moderna or Pfizer, instead.

Updated Oct. 6, 2021: Slovenia has temporarily halted Johnson & Johnson vaccine after a stroke death in a 20 year old woman.

In late June, the first case of a blood clot disorder called “thrombosis with thrombocytopenia” after an RNA double-dose vaccine was been reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The case was that of a 65-year-old man who developed symptoms ten days after his second dose of the Moderna vaccine. Because the blood clot disorder was not previously warned about in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, doctors treated the patient with heparin, the very drug that’s not supposed to be used in post-vaccine patients suffering from the disorder because it could actually worsen the condition.

The Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine was temporarily removed from the market in the U.S. on April 16, 2021 while health officials studied reports of blood clot injuries. Among them was an 18-year old teen named Emma Burkey, who got sick about a week after the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine and ended up having three brain surgeries related to blood clots and seizures.

The Johnson and Johnson vaccine was allowed back on the market April 27, 2021 with new warnings about the disorder.

Swedish health officials determined that people under age 65 should not get the Johnson and Johnson vaccine due to reports of blood clots.

An editorial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended women under age 50 avoid the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine due to concerns about blood clots. The recommendation discussed 12 case reports of a blood disorder known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) with thrombocytopenia following the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

The AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine (not currently approved in the U.S.) has been linked to a dangerous disorder involving blood clots with low blood platelets. On April 7, 2021, the European Medicines Agency says it made the association after it analyzed 62 cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis and 24 cases of splanchnic vein thrombosis reported in the EU drug safety database (EudraVigilance) as of March 22, 2021; 18 of which were fatal.

An otherwise healthy South Florida doctor, Gregory Michael, died of a brain hemorrhage 16 days after he got Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine. Authorities concluded he died of a blood disorder called “immune thrombocytopenia” (ITP) that can prevent blood from clotting and cause internal bleeding. His wife said a blood test showed the level of his platelets to be at “zero.” She said before the shot, Dr. Michael had “absolutely no medical issues” and no underlying conditions. However, authorities later categorized his death as “natural.”

In Spain, the AstraZeneca shot has been restricted in people under age 60 due to reports of blood clots in younger people.

Bulgaria, Iceland and Norway halted AstraZeneca shots for a time due to blood issues or impact on frail. Iceland, and possibly others, reinstated it in people over age 70 and, perhaps, in some over age 60.

Austria, Italy and Romania banned certain “lots” or batches of the AstraZeneca shots.

Denmark stopped using the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine altogether as well as the Johnson and Johnson vaccine after investigations into blood clots, saying “the benefits of using the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson do not outweigh the risk of causing the possible adverse effect in those who receive the vaccine.”

The Italian government recently restricted AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine to adults over age 60 after a teenager who got the shot died from a rare form of blood clotting. Eighteen-year-old Camilla Canepa died after getting vaccinated May 25, 2021. 

Several other European countries have also stopped giving the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine to people below a certain age, usually ranging from 50 to 65. 

Updated Sept. 9, 2021: An August 10 study in JAMA Cardiology urged caution in giving Covid-19 vaccine to certain high risk patients due to the vaccine link to a serious blood disorder: thrombocytopenia with thrombosis. “One of the devastating manifestations of this syndrome, termed vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT), is cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST),” say the study authors. The link involves the AstraZeneca/Oxford and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, according to the study. The AstraZeneca vaccine is not administered in the U.S. currently.

Updated Oct. 3, 2021: The European Medicines Agency recommended that blood clotting in deep veins and immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), a bleeding disorder caused by the body mistakenly attacking platelets, be added as adverse reactions to Johnson and Johnson vaccine. The ITP disorder is also linked to the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccines, which are not used in the U.S.

Capillary Leak Syndrome (Clarkson’s disease)

Updated Nov. 13, 2021: European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced a review of Moderna vaccine and a possible link to Capillary Leak Syndrome, “a rare disorder involving repeated leaks of large amounts of plasma from blood vessels into nearby body cavities and muscles. The condition—known as Clarkson’s disease—can result in a sharp drop in blood pressure that can lead to organ failure or even death.”

Earlier in the year, the EMA required Capillary Leak Syndrome to be added to the warning label of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine (which is not used in the U.S.)

Covid Infection

Nearly every measure finds the Covid infection rate is higher among the vaccinated than among the unvaccinated.

“..the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people. Notably, Israel with over 60% of their population fully vaccinated had the highest COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in the last 7 days. The lack of a meaningful association between percentage population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases is further exemplified, for instance, by comparison of Iceland and Portugal. Both countries have over 75% of their population fully vaccinated and have more COVID-19 cases per 1 million people than countries such as Vietnam and South Africa that have around 10% of their population fully vaccinated.

Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States

Diabetes

(Updated Dec. 29, 2022) Numerous case studies link Covid-19 mRNA vaccines to development of diabetes. Diabetes is also linked to other vaccines.

Frail, Elderly

Health officials in Norway sounded the alarm after 23 patients died shortly after getting the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. They advise doctors to use caution in administering the shot to “very frail elderly patients.” 

After investigating 13 of the deaths, the Norwegian authorities concluded that common side effects from so-called “RNA” vaccines may be too much for a frail elderly person to handle, and may contribute to their death. 

“There is a possibility that these common adverse reactions, that are not dangerous in fitter, younger patients and are not unusual with vaccines, may aggravate underlying disease in the elderly,” said Steinar Madsen, medical director of the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

CDC said it is monitoring the impact of the vaccines on already-frail patients such as the chronically ill in nursing homes.

Several clusters of elderly patients in U.S. nursing homes died after Pfizer or Moderna Covid-19 vaccine. In one group, a number of the patients who died tested positive for Covid-19 after vaccination.

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND)

Researchers in the United Kingdom are studying two additional cases of Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) in women in their 30s after receiving Covid-19 vaccines.

FND is a neurological disorder involving malfunctioning of the nervous system and how the brain and body transmit signals. Symptoms can include limb weakness, paralysis, tremor, spasms, problems walking, speech problems, tingling, vision loss, seizures, fatigue, anxiety, chronic pain, memory symptoms, and blackouts.

An analysis of Covid-19 vaccine adverse events showed hundreds of thousands of reports of such symptoms.

In January, videos showing vaccine patients suffering such symptoms were treated by media outlets such as Wired as if they were fake news and “dangerous” misinformation.

In fact, the videos garnered the attention of scientists who investigated and concluded they were early warnings of what happens to some who get Covid-19 vaccines.

The newest cases are outlined in the journal NeuroPsychiatry and include:

  • A 38-year old woman who got her first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine and quickly developed weakness around her ear, mouth, left arm and leg. She went to the ER the next day and was diagnosed with Bell’s palsy or a transient ischemic attack. Problems continued months later, including memory issues, and she was diagnosed with FND.
  • A 36-year-old woman who got her second dose of Moderna and quickly noticed weakness in right hand and right leg limping. A day later she reported severe leg heaviness, fatigue, movement difficulties. After physical therapy her right-side weakness improved but she awoke weeks later with left-side weakness, tightness and heaviness in neck, difficulties with daily living, rapid muscle fatigue, dragging right foot, and tremor. She was diagnosed with FND.

Graves Disease Autoimmune Disorder

Studies in Mexico and Turkey link the autoimmune thyroid disorder Graves disease to Covid-19 vaccination in numerous female health care workers, including two who were breastfeeding. Pfizer-BioNTech was the vaccine given in Mexico. A Chinese vaccine was given in Turkey. Read more at the link below.

Heart Issues (see also Blood Clots)

Updated Jan. 12, 2023: Hundreds of young people who received Pfizer’s vaccine at their high school reported cardiac symptoms and a significant percent had abnormal electrocardiogram results, researchers in Taiwan reported in a new study in the European Journal of Pediatrics.

Updated Jan. 1, 2023: A German study of autopsy results further confirms acute arrhythmogenic cardiac failure from myocarditis can be a potentially lethal complication following mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.

Updated Nov. 10, 2022: Oxford ethics scientists conclude Covid “Booster mandates in young adults are expected to cause a net harm: per COVID-19 hospitalisation prevented, we anticipate at least 18.5 serious adverse events from mRNA vaccines, including 1.5–4.6 booster-associated myopericarditis cases in males (typically requiring hospitalisation).”

Updated Oct. 8, 2022: Florida surgeon general advises young men should avoid Covid vaccines due to 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.

Updated Aug. 5, 2022: The European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommends Novavax’s Covid-19 vaccine carry warnings about heart inflammation: myocarditis and pericarditis.

Updated June 18, 2022: The FDA flagged the non-mRNA shot Novavax for heart issues similar to the mRNA vaccines, shortly before recommending the okay for Novavax in the US.

Updated Feb. 14, 2022: A pathology report on two children who died of heart issues after their second Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine implicates the vaccine as the cause.

Updated Dec. 24, 2021: A Danish study found people at “significantly increased risk” or heart inflammation after Moderna and Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination “primarily driven by an increased risk among individuals aged 12-39 years.” 

Updated Dec. 14, 2021: A British study found people at increased risk of heart inflammation from AstraZeneca (not used in U.S.), Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines.

Updated Nov. 21, 2021: An analysis presented at the American Heart Association and published in the journal Cardiology warns of a “dramatic” increase in heart risk for most people who got Covid-19 RNA vaccine.

Updated Nov. 14, 2021: Taiwan’s health minister announced temporary suspension of the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine for children due to concerns about myocarditis heart inflammation. Pfizer is the vaccine given in Taiwan.

Updated Nov. 10, 2021: A German advisory panel says the Moderna shot should not be used in people under 30 or pregnant women because it causes more cases of heart inflammation than Pfizer. Moderna’s rate of heart inflammation in young men was nearly triple that reported after Pfizer. Some health authorities have flagged heart issues with both vaccines.

Updated Oct. 10, 2021: Iceland joins Finland, Sweden and Denmark in pausing Moderna due to increased heart issues such as myocarditis and pericarditis. While some of the countries are permitting Moderna in people over age 30, Iceland is not permitting its use at all, currently.

Updated Oct. 7, 2021: Finland joins Sweden and Denmark in pausing use of Moderna in men 30 and under due to heart issues after a Nordic study found that men under the age of 30 were at a higher risk of developing myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.

Updated Oct. 6, 2021: Sweden and Denmark have halted use of Moderna in people under age 30 due to increased risk of heart injuries such as myocarditis. Slovenia has temporarily halted Johnson & Johnson.

Updated Sept. 9, 2021: The Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine was found to be associated with a threefold increased risk of myocarditis, according to a real-world case-control study from Israel. “Vaccination had a strong association with an increased risk of myocarditis as well as increased risks of lymphadenopathy [swelling or inflammation of lymph nodes], appendicitis, and herpes zoster infection.”

The Food and Drug Administration has added a new warning to Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines about risk of heart inflammation.

As of June of 2021, CDC said that more than 1,200 cases of heart inflammation (myocarditis or pericarditis) in young people had been reported after Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccination.

  • More than half were after the second dose.
  • Most of the injuries are in males under age 30.

Updated Aug. 4: A new, independent study of medical records found the incidences of myocarditis and pericarditis are more than five times more common than CDC reported.

The Israeli Ministry of Health announced it’s monitoring for heart inflammation after Pfizer’s vaccine due to reports of problems.

Myocarditis and Other Cardiovascular Complications of the mRNA-Based COVID-19 Vaccines [Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna] in a number of patients are described in a scientific article:

  • Two patients with clinically suspected myocarditis
  • One patient with stress cardiomyopathy 
  • Two patients with pericarditis 

According to the research: 

  • The two patients with clinically suspected myocarditis were otherwise healthy young men who presented with acute substernal chest pressure and/or dyspnea after receiving the second dose of the vaccine and were found to have diffuse ST elevations on electrocardiogram (ECG), elevated cardiac biomarkers and inflammatory markers, and mildly reduced left ventricular (LV) function on echocardiography. Both patients met the modified Lake Louise Criteria for acute myocarditis by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. 
  • A case of stress cardiomyopathy occurred in a 60-year-old woman with known coronary artery disease (CAD) and previously normal LV function, who presented with new exertional symptoms, ECG changes, and apical akinesis following the second dose of the vaccine. 
  • The two patients with pericarditis who presented with chest pain, elevated inflammatory markers, and pericardial effusions after receiving the vaccine.

Updated Sept.9, 2021: An August 10 study in JAMA Cardiology confirms the previously identified Pfizer vaccine’s myocarditis (heart inflammation) risk in young boys.

Read the study here.

Updated Sept. 12, 2021: A study of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines finds teenage boys are six times more likely to suffer heart issues from Covid-19 vaccination than from Covid. (However, in both instances, the risk is considered slight.)

Hepatitis C Reactivation and Death

Update Oct. 3, 2021: Scientists in the Netherlands report an elderly woman suffered “reactivation of hepatitis C infection after vaccination with the mRNA-based Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. This reactivation manifested with jaundice, loss of consciousness, hepatic coma and death” suggesting “a need for critical consideration of individuals with prior HCV infection and considered for COVID-19 vaccination.”

According to the scientists, “It is known for other vaccines that they can cause virus reactivation, especially in immunosuppressed patients and patients undergoing cancer treatment, eg as described for the herpes zoster subunit vaccine.”

Herpes Zoster Infection

Updated Sept. 9, 2021: The Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine was found to be associated with an increased risk of herpes zoster infection, according to a real-world case-control study from Israel.

Updated Oct. 3, 2021: An original analysis of adverse events I conducted of the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting (VAERS) showed 6,339 herpes-related reports.

Lymphadenopathy

Updated Sept. 9, 2021: The Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine was found to be associated with an increased risk of lymphadenopathy, swelling or inflammation of lymph nodes according to a real-world case-control study from Israel.

Manufacturing Problems

On June 11, the European Union’s drug regulator announced it will not use batches of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine that were made at a Baltimore, Maryland-based plant around the time that cross-contamination manufacturing problems were reported at the facility.

Anonymous sources claimed that up to 60 million doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine had to be thrown out. But the FDA issued a news release saying that two batches from the Baltimore plant were safe to use. The FDA said “several other batches are not suitable for use, but additional batches are still under review.”

Menstrual Cycle Changes

Updated Oct. 28, 2022: The European Medicines agency recommends “heavy menstrual bleeding” be disclosed as side effect of Covid shots Comirnaty and Spikevac.

Updated Oct. 1, 2022: A study further confirms Covid-19 vaccination leads to a small and hopefully temporary change in menstrual cycle length.

Updated Jan. 13, 2022: A study finds vaccination impacts and delays women’s periods.

Updated Sept. 19, 2021: All brands of Covid-19 vaccines are associated in changes in menstrual cycles of women, according to a British study.

Biologically plausible mechanisms linking immune stimulation with menstrual changes include immunological influences on the hormones driving the menstrual cycle or effects mediated by immune cells in the lining of the uterus, which are involved in the cyclical build-up and breakdown of this tissue. Research exploring a possible association between covid-19 vaccines and menstrual changes may also help understand the mechanism.

Menstrual changes after covid-19 vaccination

Multiple Sclerosis, an immune disorder

Update Oct. 2022: After many reports of Multiple Sclerosis illness or recurrence after Covid vaccine, as with other vaccinations, an investigation of two cases finds a potential link between MS and Covid vaccines.

Paralysis: Guillain-Barre Syndrome, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, Bell’s Palsy & Other Paralysis

Update April 27, 2023: An analysis in JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surgery finds Bell’s Palsy paralysis occurs in significantly higher numbers of people vaccinated with Covid vaccines versus placebo. The study claims Bell’s Palsy occurs even more frequently with Covid infection, but leaves out that the vaccines don’t protect against infection or transmission, so they only add to the risk. The analysis also omits that many people will never get sick with Covid or show symptoms, but 100% of those who get vaccinated are subjected to the possible increased Bell’s Palsy risk.

Update June 14, 2022: Pop star Justin Bieber announces he has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome paralysis. Scientists have found a suspected link between herpes/shingles/chickenpox activation or reactivation after Covid-19 vaccine, leading to facial paralysis, hearing loss, tinnitus and other disorders.

A patient with suspected vaccine-triggered Ramsay Hunt paralysis and hearing loss (from British Medical Journal)

Update April 26, 2022: Rates of Guillain-Barre “continue to be unusually high after Johnson & Johnson shot” according to a new analysis. “The findings confirm data seen in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) that led to the FDA warning about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in July 2021….A head-to-head comparison showed the Johnson & Johnson vaccine carried a 20% higher risk for Guillain-Barré than the mRNA shots.”

Update Jan. 20, 2022: European advisers recommended adding warnings about transverse myelitis, a serious spinal inflammation neurological disorder that can paralyze, to Johnson & Johnson’s and AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccines.

Update Dec. 15, 2021: A CDC analysis of adverse events reported to the Vaccine Safety Datalink system confirms an increased risk of Guillain-Barre paralysis after Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccination.

Update Oct. 2021: A study finds link between Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine and Guillain-Barre paralysis.

Update July 22, 2021: The European Union added Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune paralysis disorder, as a possible side effect from Johnson and Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine. 

Update July 12, 2021: The FDA added warnings about Guillain-Barre autoimmune paralysis, in which the immune system attacks the body’s nerves, after Johnson and Johnson vaccine. According to reports, the cases have primarily been reported about two weeks after vaccination, mostly in men, and “any aged 50 and older.”

Numerous case reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome paralysis after Covid-19 vaccine have prompted scientists to warn that “all physicians” should be “vigilant in recognizing Guillain-Barré syndrome in patients who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine… our observations suggest that this clinically distinct [Guillain-Barré syndrome] variant is more severe than usual and may require mechanical ventilation.” In the U.K., scientists flagged “bifacial weakness and normal facial sensation in four men between 11 and 22 days after their first doses of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine.” A case has also been reported in a patient who got the Pfizer vaccine. In India, there are reports of seven severe cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome 10 to 14 days after the first dose of AstraZeneca’s vaccine. Six were women, all had facial paralysis, “all progressed to quadriplegia, and six required respiratory support. Patients’ ages ranged from 43 to 70. Four developed other cranial neuropathies, including abducens palsy and trigeminal sensory nerve involvement.”

Guillain-Barre syndrome has been reported after other vaccinations. The cause is believed to be damage to the immune system. The disorder can be extremely serious and can lead to total paralysis with dependence on artificial respiration. Even those who recover may have serious muscle wasting and may have to slowly teach the body to relearn most every normal task, such as walking. One in 20 cases is fatal.

Pemphigus Vulgaris autoimmune disorder

Updated Sept. 15, 2023: According to a new, published report, “As many people worldwide have been vaccinated, more triggered autoimmune bullous diseases have been noticed. We reported a case of new-onset pemphigus Vulgaris after COVID-19 vaccinations…Pemphigus Vulgaris is a rare, fatal, autoimmune disease.”

Pregnant Women

Updated Jan. 13, 2022: A study finds vaccine antibodies in breast milk and plasma of vaccinated women, transmitted to their babies. Scientists say that’s a good thing.

Several Brazilian states suspended use of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women in May 2021 after a pregnant woman died after getting vaccinated. The decisions follow the recommendation of the country’s National Health Surveillance Agency, which recommended “immediate suspension” of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women after results of vaccine adverse events monitoring in the country.

CDC says that with limited data on impact of Covid-19 vaccine in pregnant women and on their unborn children, the decision on whether to vaccinate while pregnant is an individual decision to be made between a woman and her physician.

Updated Oct. 23, 2021: A study of AstraZeneca vaccine (not used in the U.S.) finds 30% preterm birth rate for pregnant women vs. 0% in the control group.

Vaccinated (left column) vs. Control (right column)

Previously-infected

CDC falsely claimed that studies showed Covid-19 vaccines are effective for those who already had Covid-19. In fact, studies showed the opposite.

Shingles

Updated Dec. 30, 2022: A large study conducted in Germany and by the University of Virginia finds mRNA Covid vaccines can trigger shingles outbreaks.

Tinnitis

Multiple studies as well as the VAERS database document vaccine-associated tinnitis or ringing and/or noise in one or both ears, which can be a result of nerve damage and can be debilitating.

Transplant Rejection

Updated Oct 9, 2022: A study by Japanese researchers in the Journal of Clinical Medicine showed that acute corneal allografts may be rejected by those who have recently received Covid shots. There are other published studies regarding organ transplant rejection after Covid vaccination. Other vaccines, including flu shots, are also believed to cause organ transplant rejection in some, say scientists.

Waning Immunity, Breakthrough Infections

Read: “Pandemic of the Vaccinated”

Update Jan. 13, 2022: European Union regulators warned that “frequent Covid-19 booster shots could adversely affect the immune system and may not be feasible.” The agency said that “Repeat booster doses every four months could eventually weaken the immune system and tire out people.” The concern arises as more data reveals the Covid-19 shots do not provide effective protection against infection and spread of Covid beyond a short period of time.

Update Nov. 7, 2021: A U.S. study finds after 6 mos. Moderna vaccine effectiveness drops to 60%. Pfizer drops to 49%. J&J drops to 13%. Last yr, FDA’s Dr. Hahn said FDA wouldn’t authorize vaccines that weren’t at least 50% effective.

Update Oct. 30, 2021: A UK study finds “Household Secondary Attack Rate for delta infection, regardless of vaccination status, was 26%” and “peak viral load did not differ by vaccination status.”

Update Oct. 29, 2021: Unlike natural immunity, Israeli data confirms that the Pfizer vaccine wore off in just a few months in all age groups.

Update Oct. 13, 2021: Data from the UK finds vaccines are “highly effective,” but effectiveness wanes after as little as 3-4 months.

Update Oct. 8, 2021: A study of health care workers in Vietnam found vaccinated people infected with Delta Covid-19 carry “unusually high viral loads” in their nostrils that are “251 times higher.” The study said that during a period when the vaccinated patients are infected but don’t yet know it, they could be responsible for heightened spread to other vaccinated or the unvaccinated. The subjects had been fully vaccinated with AstraZeneca’s vaccine, which is not used in the U.S.

Israel announced that about half of the adults infected with Covid-19 during its outbreak in the June 2021 time period were fully vaccinated. The fully-vaccinated individuals had gotten Pfizer’s shots.

According to Epoch Times, in June 2021 nearly 4,000 fully vaccinated people in Massachusetts tested positive for Covid-19. On April 30, “the CDC reported that some 10,626 breakthrough cases were reported in 46 states and territories.” Breakthrough cases are where fully vaccinated people still end up infected with Covid-19.

Scientists hoped that Covid-19 vaccines would be effective in variants of Covid-19, which are mutations that occur naturally with viruses and were always expected with Covid-19. However, the vaccine effectiveness against variants may be limited. CDC and vaccine makers are studying the medical landscape to find out more.

Other states, such as Maine, are noting Covid-19 deaths occurring in fully vaccinated people.

Update Aug. 24, 2021: With evidence of seriously-waning immunity at the five- to six-month mark, CDC is now recommending a third “booster” shot. In highly-vaccinated Israel, recognition that vaccination likely does not confer protection beyond a few months, the country has reimagined its vaccine passports. They will only apply to people who have had three shots, and only be good for a six month period of time.

Update Sept. 10, 2021: An analysis of data in Israel, which has one of the world’s highest Covid-19 vaccination levels, showed almost 60% of those hospitalized for Covid were fully vaccinated. “This is a very clear warning sign for the rest of the world,” said Ran Balicer, CIO at Clalit Health Services, Israel’s largest health maintenance organization. “If it can happen here, it can probably happen anywhere.” The Pfizer vaccine is given in Israel.

Update Oct. 4, 2021: A study by university and NIH scientists in the U.S. finds Pfizer vaccine antibodies disappear after about 7 months in many patients.

Summary by vaccine

Novavax

Updated Aug. 5, 2022: The European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommends Novavax’s Covid-19 vaccine carry warnings about heart inflammation: myocarditis and pericarditis. The FDA flagged heart side effects o Novavax in June of 2022.

Pfizer and Moderna

Updated Sept. 1, 2022: A study in the journal Vaccine finds: Excess risk of serious adverse events from Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines outweighs risks from Covid-19 itself. Pfizer vaccine: 36% higher risk of serious adverse events than placebo. Moderna: 6% higher. Combined: 16% higher.

Transplant Rejection

Updated Oct. 9, 2022: A study by Japanese researchers published in June 2022 in the Journal of Clinical Medicine showed that acute corneal allografts may be rejected by those who have recently received Covid shots. There are other published studies regarding organ transplant rejection after Covid vaccination. Other vaccines, including flu shots, are also believed to cause organ transplant rejection in some, say scientists.

Menstrual Cycle Changes

Updated Oct. 1, 2022: A study further confirms Covid-19 vaccination leads to a small and hopefully temporary change in menstrual cycle length.

Updated Jan. 13, 2022: A study finds vaccination impacts and delays women’s periods.

Updated Sept. 19, 2021: All brands of Covid-19 vaccines are associated in changes in menstrual cycles of women, according to a British study.

Biologically plausible mechanisms linking immune stimulation with menstrual changes include immunological influences on the hormones driving the menstrual cycle or effects mediated by immune cells in the lining of the uterus, which are involved in the cyclical build-up and breakdown of this tissue. Research exploring a possible association between covid-19 vaccines and menstrual changes may also help understand the mechanism.

Menstrual changes after covid-19 vaccination

Acute CNS Demyelination and Multiple Sclerosis

A new study in Journal of Neurology examines possible links between Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and acute Central Nervous System (CNS) demyelination, including Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Demyelinating diseases damage the protective covering surrounding nerve fibers in the brain, optic nerves and spinal cord, causing neurological problems. In the study, four patients had the Pfizer vaccine and three had the Moderna vaccine. Within 21 days of the first or second dose, the patients developed active CNS demyelination of the optic nerve, brain, and/or spinal cord leading to “visual loss, dysmetria, gait instability, paresthesias, sphincter disturbance, and limb weakness.”

Age ranged from 24 to 64 years old. Four patients were ultimately diagnoses with exacerbation of their stable MS.

Two were diagnosed with new cases of MS.

One was diagnosed with neuromyelitis optica.

Capillary Leak Syndrome:

Updated Nov. 13, 2021: European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced a review of Moderna vaccine and a possible link to Capillary Leak Syndrome, “a rare disorder involving repeated leaks of large amounts of plasma from blood vessels into nearby body cavities and muscles. The condition—known as Clarkson’s disease—can result in a sharp drop in blood pressure that can lead to organ failure or even death.”

Waning Immunity, Breakthrough Infections

Update Nov. 7, 2021: A U.S. study finds after 6 mos. Moderna vaccine effectiveness drops to 60%. Pfizer drops to 49%. J&J drops to 13%. Last yr, FDA’s Dr. Hahn said FDA wouldn’t authorize vaccines that weren’t at least 50% effective.

Functional Neurological Disorder (FND)

Updated Aug. 30, 2021: Researchers in the United Kingdom are studying two additional cases of Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) in women in their 30s after receiving Covid-19 vaccines.

FND is a neurological disorder involving malfunctioning of the nervous system and how the brain and body transmit signals. Symptoms can include limb weakness, paralysis, tremor, spasms, problems walking, speech problems, tingling, vision loss, seizures, fatigue, anxiety, chronic pain, memory symptoms, and blackouts.

An analysis of Covid-19 vaccine adverse events showed hundreds of thousands of reports of such symptoms.

In January, videos showing vaccine patients suffering such symptoms were treated by media outlets such as Wired as if they were fake news and “dangerous” misinformation.

In fact, the videos garnered the attention of scientists who investigated and concluded they were early warnings of what happens to some who get Covid-19 vaccines.

The newest cases are outlined in the journal Neurology and include:

  • A 38-year old woman who got her first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine and quickly developed weakness around her ear, mouth, left arm and leg. She went to the ER the next day and was diagnosed with Bell’s palsy or a transient ischemic attack. Problems continued months later, including memory issues, and she was diagnosed with FND.
  • A 36-year-old woman who got her second dose of Moderna and quickly noticed weakness in right hand and right leg limping. A day later she reported severe leg heaviness, fatigue, movement difficulties. After physical therapy her right-side weakness improved but she awoke weeks later with left-side weakness, tightness and heaviness in neck, difficulties with daily living, rapid muscle fatigue, dragging right foot, and tremor. She was diagnosed with FND.

Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE)

Updated (read more here). According to studies:

  • Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) can make vaccinated people more susceptible to serious infection from the virus
  • “ADE may be a concern” for those who have been vaccinated for Covid-19
  • With ADE, after people get vaccinated for an initial virus, infection by a subsequent variant or strain of the virus can result in “increased viral replication and more severe disease, leading to major safety risks”
  • ADE can also “occur when neutralizing antibodies (which bind the virus and stop it from causing infection) are present at low enough levels that they don’t protect against infection. Instead, they can form immune complexes with viral particles, which in turn leads to worse illness”
  • This concern was initially described by some scientists who were subsequently banned from media platforms that incorrectly claimed the scientists were disseminating disinformation

Guillain-Barre autoimmune paralysis and Ramsay Hunt syndrome

Update June 14, 2022: Pop star Justin Bieber announces he has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome paralysis. Scientists have found a suspected link between herpes/shingles/chickenpox activation or reactivation after Covid-19 vaccine, leading to facial paralysis, hearing loss, tinnitus and other disorders.

A patient with suspected vaccine-triggered Ramsay Hunt paralysis and hearing loss (from British Medical Journal)

Numerous case reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome paralysis after Covid-19 vaccine have prompted scientists to warn that “all physicians” should be “vigilant in recognizing Guillain-Barré syndrome in patients who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine… our observations suggest that this clinically distinct [Guillain-Barré syndrome] variant is more severe than usual and may require mechanical ventilation.” In the U.K., scientists flagged “bifacial weakness and normal facial sensation in four men between 11 and 22 days after their first doses of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine.” A case has also been reported in a patient who got the Pfizer vaccine. In India, there are reports of seven severe cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome 10 to 14 days after the first dose of AstraZeneca’s vaccine. Six were women, all had facial paralysis, “all progressed to quadriplegia, and six required respiratory support. Patients’ ages ranged from 43 to 70. Four developed other cranial neuropathies, including abducens palsy and trigeminal sensory nerve involvement.”

Guillain-Barre syndrome has been reported after other vaccinations. The cause is believed to be damage to the immune system. The disorder can be extremely serious and can lead to total paralysis with dependence on artificial respiration. Even those who recover may have serious muscle wasting and may have to slowly teach the body to relearn most every normal task, such as walking. One in 20 cases is fatal.

Blood Clots

Updated Aug. 31, 2022: A Hong Kong study finds Pfizer vaccine carries increased risk of hemorrhragic stroke after Pfizer vaccine. The study authors say it’s still a benefit to get vaccinated, though, because the stroke rate among Covid patients is even higher. But that wrongly assumes vaccination prevents Covid. It also compares the wrong pools of patients. To look at true risk vs. benefit, the stroke rate should be compared between vaccinated people and all unvaccinated people– not just those with Covid.

The first case of a blood clot disorder called “thrombosis with thrombocytopenia” after an RNA double-dose vaccine was been reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The case was that of a 65-year-old man who developed symptoms ten days after his second dose of the Moderna vaccine. Because the blood clot disorder was not previously warned about in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, doctors treated the patient with heparin, the very drug that’s not supposed to be used in post-vaccine patients suffering from the disorder because it could actually worsen the condition.

(Updated Dec. 29, 2022) Numerous case studies link Covid-19 mRNA vaccines to development of diabetes. Diabetes is also linked to other vaccines.

Heart inflammation

Updated Jan. 12, 2023: Hundreds of young people who received Pfizer’s vaccine at their high school reported cardiac symptoms and a significant percent had abnormal electrocardiogram results, researchers in Taiwan reported in a new study in the European Journal of Pediatrics.

Updated Jan. 1, 2023: A German study of autopsy results further confirms acute arrhythmogenic cardiac failure from myocarditis can be a potentially lethal complication following mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.

Updated Oct. 8, 2022: Florida surgeon general advises young men should avoid Covid vaccines due to 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.

Updated Feb. 14, 2022: A pathology report on two children who died of heart issues after their second Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine implicates the vaccine as the cause.

Updated Dec. 24, 2021: A Danish study found people at “significantly increased risk” or heart inflammation after Moderna and Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination “primarily driven by an increased risk among individuals aged 12-39 years.” 

Updated Dec. 14, 2021: A British study study found people at increased risk of heart inflammation from AstraZeneca (not used in U.S.), Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines.

Updated Nov. 21, 2021: An analysis presented at the American Heart Association and published in the journal Cardiology warns of a “dramatic” increase in heart risk for most people who got Covid-19 RNA vaccine.

Updated Nov. 14, 2021: Taiwan’s health minister announced temporary suspension of the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine for children due to concerns about myocarditis heart inflammation. Pfizer is the vaccine given in Taiwan.

Updated Nov. 10, 2021: A German advisory panel says the Moderna shot should not be used in people under 30 or pregnant women because it causes more cases of heart inflammation than Pfizer. Moderna’s rate of heart inflammation in young men was nearly triple that reported after Pfizer. Some health authorities have flagged heart issues with both vaccines.

Updated Oct. 10, 2021: Iceland joins Finland, Sweden and Denmark in pausing Moderna due to increased heart issues such as myocarditis and pericarditis. While some of the countries are permitting Moderns in people over age 30, Iceland is not permitting its use at all, currently.

Updated Oct. 7, 2021: Finland joins Sweden and Denmark in pausing use of Moderna in men 30 and under due to heart issues after a Nordic study found that men under the age of 30 were at a higher risk of developing myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.

Updated Oct. 6, 2021: Sweden and Denmark have halted use of Moderna in people under age 30 due to increased risk of heart injuries such as myocarditis.

Updated Sept. 9, 2021: The Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine was found to be associated with a threefold increased risk of myocarditis, according to a real-world case-control study from Israel. “Vaccination had a strong association with an increased risk of myocarditis as well as increased risks of lymphadenopathy [swelling or inflammation of lymph nodes], appendicitis, and herpes zoster infection.”

The Food and Drug Administration has added a new warning to Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines about risk of heart inflammation.

As of June of 2021, CDC said that more than 1,200 cases of heart inflammation (myocarditis of pericarditis) in young people had been reported after Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccination.

  • More than half were after the second dose.
  • Most of the injuries are in males under age 30.

Updated Aug. 4: A new, independent study of medical records found the incidences of myocarditis and pericarditis are more than five times more common than CDC reported.

The Israeli Ministry of Health announced it’s monitoring for heart inflammation after Pfizer’s vaccine due to reports of problems.

Myocarditis and Other Cardiovascular Complications of the mRNA-Based COVID-19 Vaccines [Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna] in a number of patients are described in a scientific article:

  • Two patients with clinically suspected myocarditis
  • One patient with stress cardiomyopathy 
  • Two patients with pericarditis 

According to the research: 

  • The two patients with clinically suspected myocarditis were otherwise healthy young men who presented with acute substernal chest pressure and/or dyspnea after receiving the second dose of the vaccine and were found to have diffuse ST elevations on electrocardiogram (ECG), elevated cardiac biomarkers and inflammatory markers, and mildly reduced left ventricular (LV) function on echocardiography. Both patients met the modified Lake Louise Criteria for acute myocarditis by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. 
  • A case of stress cardiomyopathy occurred in a 60-year-old woman with known coronary artery disease (CAD) and previously normal LV function, who presented with new exertional symptoms, ECG changes, and apical akinesis following the second dose of the vaccine. 
  • The two patients with pericarditis who presented with chest pain, elevated inflammatory markers, and pericardial effusions after receiving the vaccine.

An otherwise healthy South Florida doctor, Gregory Michael, died of a brain hemorrhage 16 days after he got Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine. Authorities concluded he died of a blood disorder called “immune thrombocytopenia” (ITP) that can prevent blood from clotting and cause internal bleeding. His wife said a blood test showed the level of his platelets to be at “zero.” She said before the shot, Dr. Michael had “absolutely no medical issues” and no underlying conditions. However, authorities later categorized his death as “natural.”

Updated Sept. 12, 2021: A study of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines finds teenage boys are six times more likely to suffer heart issues from Covid-19 vaccination than from Covid. (However, in both instances, the risk is considered slight.)

Frail, elderly

Health officials in Norway sounded the alarm after 23 patients died shortly after receiving the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. They advise doctors to use caution in administering the shot to “very frail elderly patients.” 

After investigating 13 of the deaths, the Norwegian authorities concluded that common side effects from so-called “RNA” vaccines may be too much for a frail elderly person to handle, and may contribute to their death. 

“There is a possibility that these common adverse reactions, that are not dangerous in fitter, younger patients and are not unusual with vaccines, may aggravate underlying disease in the elderly,” said Steinar Madsen, medical director of the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

CDC said it is monitoring the impact of the vaccines on already-frail patients such as the chronically ill in nursing homes.

Several clusters of elderly patients in U.S. nursing homes died after Pfizer or Moderna Covid-19 vaccine. In one group, a number of the patients who died tested positive for Covid-19 after vaccination.

Israel announced that about half of the adults infected with Covid-19 during its outbreak in the June 2021 time period were fully vaccinated. The fully-vaccinated individuals had gotten Pfizer’s shots.

Graves Disease

Studies in Mexico and Turkey link the autoimmune thyroid disorder Graves disease to Covid-19 vaccination in numerous female health care workers, including two who were breastfeeding. Pfizer-BioNTech was the vaccine given in Mexico. A Chinese vaccine was given in Turkey. Read more at the link here.

Shingles

Updated Dec. 30, 2022: A large study conducted in Germany and by the University of Virginia finds mRNA Covid vaccines can trigger shingles outbreaks.

Novavax

Updated June 18, 2022: The FDA flagged the non-mRNA shot Novavax for heart issues similar to the mRNA vaccines, shortly before recommending the okay for Novavax in the US.

Johnson and Johnson

Updated Oct. 9, 2022: Transplant Rejection: A study by Japanese researchers published in June 2022 in the Journal of Clinical Medicine showed that acute corneal allografts may be rejected by those who have recently received Covid shots. There are other published studies regarding organ transplant rejection after Covid vaccination. Other vaccines, including flu shots, are also believed to cause organ transplant rejection in some, say scientists.

Updated Oct. 1, 2022: A study further confirms Covid-19 vaccination leads to a small and hopefully temporary change in menstrual cycle length.

Updated May 11, 2022: FDA limits use of Johnson & Johnson vaccine citing risk of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS): blood clots in combination with low levels of blood platelets.

Update April 26, 2022: Rates of Guillain-Barre “continue to be unusually high after Johnson & Johnson shot” according to a new analysis. “The findings confirm data seen in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) that led to the FDA warning about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in July 2021….A head-to-head comparison showed the Johnson & Johnson vaccine carried a 20% higher risk for Guillain-Barré than the mRNA shots.”

Updated Jan. 20, 2022: The FDA has added a warning about immune thrombocytopenia, ITP, to Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.

Update Jan. 20, 2022: European advisers recommended adding warnings about transverse myelitis, a serious spinal inflammation neurological disorder that can paralyze, to Johnson & Johnson’s and AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccines.Updated Jan. 13, 2022: A study finds vaccination impacts and delays women’s periods.

Update Dec. 16, 2021: CDC warns of risk of blood clots, Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), with Johnson & Johnson vaccine and recommends people get Moderna or Pfizer, instead.

Update Dec. 15, 2021: A CDC analysis of adverse events reported to the Vaccine Safety Datalink system confirms an increased risk of Guillain-Barre paralysis after Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccination.

Update Nov. 7, 2021: A U.S. study finds after 6 mos. Moderna vaccine effectiveness drops to 60%. Pfizer drops to 49%. J&J drops to 13%. Last yr, FDA’s Dr. Hahn said FDA wouldn’t authorize vaccines that weren’t at least 50% effective.

Update Oct. 2021: A study finds link between Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine and Guillain-Barre paralysis.

Updated Oct. 6, 2021: Slovenia has temporarily halted Johnson & Johnson after the stroke death of a 20 year old woman.

Updated Oct. 3, 2021: The European Medicines Agency recommended that blood clotting in deep veins and immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), a bleeding disorder caused by the body mistakenly attacking platelets, be added as adverse reactions to Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

Update Sept. 19, 2021: All brands of Covid-19 vaccines are associated in changes in menstrual cycles of women, according to a British study.

Biologically plausible mechanisms linking immune stimulation with menstrual changes include immunological influences on the hormones driving the menstrual cycle or effects mediated by immune cells in the lining of the uterus, which are involved in the cyclical build-up and breakdown of this tissue. Research exploring a possible association between covid-19 vaccines and menstrual changes may also help understand the mechanism.

Menstrual changes after covid-19 vaccination

Update Sept. 9, 2021: An August 10 study in JAMA Cardiology urged caution in giving Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine to certain high risk patients due to the vaccine link to a serious blood disorder: thrombocytopenia with thrombosis. “One of the devastating manifestations of this syndrome, termed vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT), is cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST),” say the study authors.

Read the study here.

Update July 22, 2021: The European Union added Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune paralysis disorder, as a possible side effect from Johnson and Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine. 

Update July 12, 2021: The FDA added warnings about Guillain-Barre autoimmune paralysis, in which the immune system attacks the body’s nerves, after Johnson and Johnson vaccine. According to reports, the cases have primarily been reported about two weeks after vaccination, mostly in men, and “any aged 50 and older.”

The Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine was temporarily removed from the market in the U.S. on April 16, 2021 while health officials studied reports of blood clot injuries. 

Updated Aug. 4: A new, independent study of medical records found the incidences of myocarditis and pericarditis are more than five times more common than CDC reported.

The Johnson and Johnson vaccine was allowed back on the market April 27, 2021 with new warnings about the disorder.

Swedish health officials determined that people under age 65 should not get the Johnson and Johnson vaccine due to reports of blood clots.

An editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended women under age 50 avoid the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine due to concerns about blood clots: a blood disorder known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) with thrombocytopenia following the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

On June 11, the European Union’s drug regulator announced it will not use batches of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine that were made at a Baltimore, Maryland-based plant around the time that cross-contamination manufacturing problems were reported at the facility.

Anonymous sources claimed that up to 60 million doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine had to be thrown out. But the FDA issued a news release saying that two batches from the Baltimore plant were safe to use. The FDA said “several other batches are not suitable for use, but additional batches are still under review.”

Denmark  banned the Johnson and Johnson vaccine altogether saying “the benefits of using the COVID-19 vaccine from Johnson & Johnson do not outweigh the risk of causing the possible adverse effect in those who receive the vaccine”.

AstraZeneca (not given in the U.S.)

Capillary Leak Syndrome

The European Medicines Agency required Capillary Leak Syndrome to be added to the warning label of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine.

Update Jan. 20, 2022: European advisers recommended adding warnings about transverse myelitis, a serious spinal inflammation neurological disorder that can paralyze, to Johnson & Johnson’s and AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccines.

Update Sept. 19, 2021: All brands of Covid-19 vaccines are associated in changes in menstrual cycles of women, according to a British study.

Biologically plausible mechanisms linking immune stimulation with menstrual changes include immunological influences on the hormones driving the menstrual cycle or effects mediated by immune cells in the lining of the uterus, which are involved in the cyclical build-up and breakdown of this tissue. Research exploring a possible association between covid-19 vaccines and menstrual changes may also help understand the mechanism.

Read the study here.

The AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine has been linked to a dangerous disorder involving blood clots with low blood platelets. 

On April 7, 2021: The European Medicines Agency says it made the association after it analyzed 62 cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis and 24 cases of splanchnic vein thrombosis reported in the EU drug safety database (EudraVigilance) as of March 22, 2021, 18 of which were fatal.

In Spain, the AstraZeneca shot has been restricted in people under age 60 due to reports of blood clots in younger people.

Bulgaria, Iceland and Norway halted AstraZeneca shots due to blood issues or impact on frail. Iceland, and perhaps some others, reinstated it in people over age 70 and, perhaps, in some over age 60.

Austria, Italy and Romania banned certain “lots” or batches of the AstraZeneca shots.

Denmark stopped using the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine altogether after investigations into blood clots.

The Italian government recently restricted AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine to adults over age 60 after a teenager who got the shot died from a rare form of blood clotting. Eighteen-year-old Camilla Canepa died after getting vaccinated May 25, 2021. 

Several other European countries have also stopped giving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to people below a certain age, usually ranging from 50 to 65. 

Several Brazilian states suspended use of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women in May 2021 after a pregnant woman died after getting vaccinated. The decisions follow the recommendation of the country’s National Health Surveillance Agency, which recommended “immediate suspension” of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women after results of vaccine adverse events monitoring in the country.

Numerous case reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome paralysis after Covid-19 vaccine have prompted scientists to warn that “all physicians” should be “vigilant in recognizing Guillain-Barré syndrome in patients who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine… our observations suggest that this clinically distinct [Guillain-Barré syndrome] variant is more severe than usual and may require mechanical ventilation.” In the U.K., scientists flagged “bifacial weakness and normal facial sensation in four men between 11 and 22 days after their first doses of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine.” A case has also been reported in a patient who got the Pfizer vaccine. In India, there are reports of seven severe cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome 10 to 14 days after the first dose of AstraZeneca’s vaccine. Six were women, all had facial paralysis, “all progressed to quadriplegia, and six required respiratory support. Patients’ ages ranged from 43 to 70. Four developed other cranial neuropathies, including abducens palsy and trigeminal sensory nerve involvement.”

Guillain-Barre syndrome has been reported after other vaccinations. The cause is believed to be damage to the immune system. The disorder can be extremely serious and can lead to total paralysis with dependence on artificial respiration. Even those who recover may have serious muscle wasting and may have to slowly teach the body to relearn most every normal task, such as walking. One in 20 cases is fatal.

Updated Dec. 14, 2021: A British study study found people at increased risk of heart inflammation from AstraZeneca (not used in U.S.), Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines.

Summary by country

Austria: Banned certain “lots” or batches of AstraZeneca shots.

Brazil: Several Brazilian states suspended use of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women in May 2021 after a pregnant woman died after getting vaccinated. The decisions follow the recommendation of the country’s National Health Surveillance Agency, which recommended “immediate suspension” of the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine for pregnant women after results of vaccine adverse events monitoring in the country.

Updated Oct. 23, 2021: A study of AstraZeneca vaccine (not used in the U.S.) finds 30% preterm birth rate for pregnant women vs. 0% in the control group. (The study was done in women in Brazil, the UK and S. Africa)

Bulgaria: Bulgaria, Iceland and Norway halted AstraZeneca shots for a time due to blood issues or impact on frail. Iceland, and possibly others, reinstated it in people over age 70 and, perhaps, in some over age 60.

Denmark: Updated Dec. 24, 2021: A Danish study found people at “significantly increased risk” or heart inflammation after Moderna and Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination “primarily driven by an increased risk among individuals aged 12-39 years.” 

Stopped using the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine and the Johnson and Johnson vaccine altogether after investigations into blood clots.

Updated Oct. 6, 2021: Sweden and Denmark have halted use of Moderna in people under age 30 due to increased risk of heart injuries such as myocarditis.

European Union: Updated Oct. 28, 2022: The European Medicines agency recommends “heavy menstrual bleeding” be disclosed as side effect of Covid shots Comirnaty and Spikevac.

Updated Aug. 5, 2022: The European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommends Novavax’s Covid-19 vaccine carry warnings about heart inflammation: myocarditis and pericarditis. The FDA flagged heart side effects o Novavax in June of 2022.

Updated Jan. 20, 2022: European advisers recommended adding warnings about transverse myelitis, a serious spinal inflammation neurological disorder that can paralyze, to Johnson & Johnson’s and AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccines.

Updated Nov. 13, 2021: The European Medicines Agency announced a review of Moderna vaccine and a possible link to Capillary Leak Syndrome, “a rare disorder involving repeated leaks of large amounts of plasma from blood vessels into nearby body cavities and muscles. The condition—known as Clarkson’s disease—can result in a sharp drop in blood pressure that can lead to organ failure or even death.”

Earlier in the year, the EMA required Capillary Leak Syndrome to be added to the warning label of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine (which is not used in the U.S.)

Oct. 3, 2021: The European Medicines Agency recommended that blood clotting in deep veins and immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), a bleeding disorder caused by the body mistakenly attacking platelets, be added as adverse reactions to Johnson and Johnson vaccine. The ITP disorder is also linked to the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccines, which aren’t currently used in the US..

July 22, 2021: The European Union added Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune paralysis disorder, as a possible side effect from Johnson and Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine. 

The AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine (not currently approved in the U.S.) has been linked to a dangerous disorder involving blood clots with low blood platelets. On April 7, 2021, the European Medicines Agency says it made the association after it analyzed 62 cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis and 24 cases of splanchnic vein thrombosis reported in the EU drug safety database (EudraVigilance) as of March 22, 2021, 18 of which were fatal.

On June 11, the European Union’s drug regulator announced it will not use batches of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine that were made at a Baltimore, Maryland-based plant around the time that cross-contamination manufacturing problems were reported at the facility.

Several European countries have stopped giving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to people below a certain age, usually ranging from 50 to 65. 

Numerous case reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome paralysis after Covid-19 vaccine have prompted scientists to warn that “all physicians” should be “vigilant in recognizing Guillain-Barré syndrome in patients who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine… our observations suggest that this clinically distinct [Guillain-Barré syndrome] variant is more severe than usual and may require mechanical ventilation.” In the U.K., scientists flagged “bifacial weakness and normal facial sensation in four men between 11 and 22 days after their first doses of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine.” A case has also been reported in a patient who got the Pfizer vaccine.

Even those who recover may have serious muscle wasting and may have to slowly teach the body to relearn most every normal task, such as walking. One in 20 cases is fatal.

Finland: Updated Oct. 7, 2021: Finland joins Sweden and Denmark in pausing use of Moderna in men 30 and under due to heart issues after a Nordic study found that men under the age of 30 were at a higher risk of developing myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.

Germany:

Updated Jan. 1, 2023: A German study of autopsy results further confirms acute arrhythmogenic cardiac failure from myocarditis can be a potentially lethal complication following mRNA-based anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination.

Updated Dec. 30, 2022: A large study conducted in Germany and by the University of Virginia finds mRNA Covid vaccines can trigger shingles outbreaks.

Hong-Kong:

Updated Aug. 31, 2022: A Hong Kong study finds Pfizer vaccine carries increased risk of hemorrhragic stroke after Pfizer vaccine. The study authors say it’s still a benefit to get vaccinated, though, because the stroke rate among Covid patients is even higher. But that wrongly assumes vaccination prevents Covid. It also compares the wrong pools of patients. To look at true risk vs. benefit, the stroke rate should be compared between vaccinated people and all unvaccinated people– not just those with Covid.

Updated Aug. 17: An analysis in Hong Kong shows risk of Bell’s palsy is higher with CoronaVac (Sinovac Biotech) shot, a vaccine formulation not currently used in U.S. Bell’s palsy is facial paralysis, muscle twitching, or weakness. It may include change in taste, and pain around the ear, increased sensitivity to sound known as hyperacusis. An adverse event analysis of U.S. reports shows 4,154 Bell’s Palsy after Covid-19 vaccination.

Iceland:

Halted AstraZeneca shots due to blood issues in March, then reinstated it for people over age 70 and perhaps some over age 60.

Updated Oct. 10, 2021: Iceland joins Finland, Sweden and Denmark in pausing Moderna due to increased heart issues such as myocarditis and pericarditis. While some of the countries are permitting Moderns in people over age 30, Iceland is not permitting its use at all, currently.

India:

Numerous case reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome paralysis after Covid-19 vaccine have prompted scientists to warn that “all physicians” should be “vigilant in recognizing Guillain-Barré syndrome in patients who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine… our observations suggest that this clinically distinct [Guillain-Barré syndrome] variant is more severe than usual and may require mechanical ventilation.” In the U.K., scientists flagged “bifacial weakness and normal facial sensation in four men between 11 and 22 days after their first doses of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine.” A case has also been reported in a patient who got the Pfizer vaccine.

Four developed other cranial neuropathies, including abducens palsy and trigeminal sensory nerve involvement.”

Guillain-Barre syndrome has been reported after other vaccinations. The cause is believed to be damage to the immune system. The disorder can be extremely serious and can lead to total paralysis with dependence on artificial respiration. Even those who recover may have serious muscle wasting and may have to slowly teach the body to relearn most every normal task, such as walking. One in 20 cases is fatal.

Israel:

Update: June 25, 2022: Nearly every measure finds the Covid infection rate is higher among the vaccinated than among the unvaccinated.

The Israeli Ministry of Health announced it’s monitoring for heart inflammation after Pfizer’s vaccine due to reports of problems.

Announced that about half of the adults infected with Covid-19 during its outbreak in the June 2021 time period were fully vaccinated. The fully-vaccinated individuals had gotten Pfizer’s shots.

Update Aug. 24, 2021: In highly-vaccinated Israel, recognition that vaccination likely does not confer protection beyond a few months, the country has reimagined its vaccine passports. They will only apply to people who have had three shots, and only be good for a six month period of time.

Updated Sept. 9 2021: The Pfizer COVID-19 mRNA vaccine was found to be associated with a threefold increased risk of myocarditis, according to a real-world case-control study from Israel. “Vaccination had a strong association with an increased risk of myocarditis as well as increased risks of lymphadenopathy [swelling or inflammation of lymph nodes], appendicitis, and herpes zoster infection.”

Italy:

Restricted AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine to adults over age 60 after a teenager who got the shot died from a rare form of blood clotting. Eighteen-year-old Camilla Canepa died after getting vaccinated May 25, 2021. 

Banned certain “lots” or batches of the AstraZeneca shots.

Japan:

Updated Oct. 9, 2022: A study by Japanese researchers published in June 2022 in the Journal of Clinical Medicine showed that acute corneal allografts may be rejected by those who have recently received Covid shots. There are other published studies regarding organ transplant rejection after Covid vaccination. Other vaccines, including flu shots, are also believed to cause organ transplant rejection in some, say scientists.

Mexico:

Studies in Mexico and Turkey link the autoimmune thyroid disorder Graves disease to Covid-19 vaccination in numerous female health care workers, including two who were breastfeeding. Pfizer-BioNTech was the vaccine given in Mexico. A Chinese vaccine was given in Turkey. Read more at the link here.

Norway:

Halted AstraZeneca shots. Cautioned use of the vaccine in “very frail elderly patients” after nearly two dozen deaths. 

“There is a possibility that these common adverse reactions, that are not dangerous in fitter, younger patients and are not unusual with vaccines, may aggravate underlying disease in the elderly,” said Steinar Madsen, medical director of the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

Romania:

Banned certain “lots” or batches of the AstraZeneca shots.

Slovenia:

Updated Oct. 6, 2021: Slovenia has temporarily halted Johnson & Johnson after the stroke death of a 20 year old woman.

South Africa:

Updated Oct. 23, 2021: A study of AstraZeneca vaccine (not used in the U.S.) finds 30% preterm birth rate for pregnant women vs. 0% in the control group. (Study done in women in S. Africa, UK, and Brazil.)

Spain:

The AstraZeneca shot has been restricted in people under age 60 due to reports of blood clots in younger people.

Sweden:

Health officials determined that people under age 65 should not get the Johnson and Johnson vaccine due to reports of blood clots.

Updated Oct. 6, 2021: Sweden and Denmark have halted use of Moderna in people under age 30 due to increased risk of heart injuries such as myocarditis.

Syria:

Updated Sept. 15, 2023: “As many people worldwide have been vaccinated, more triggered autoimmune bullous diseases have been noticed. We reported a case of new-onset pemphigus Vulgaris after COVID-19 vaccinations…Pemphigus Vulgaris is a rare, fatal, autoimmune disease.” https://www.medscape.com/s/viewarticle/995100

Taiwan (China):

Updated Jan. 12, 2023: Hundreds of young people who received Pfizer’s vaccine at their high school reported cardiac symptoms and a significant percent had abnormal electrocardiogram results, researchers in Taiwan reported in a new study in the European Journal of Pediatrics.

Updated Nov. 14, 2021: Taiwan’s health minister announced temporary suspension of the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine for children due to concerns about myocarditis heart inflammation. Pfizer is the vaccine given in Taiwan.

Turkey:

Studies in Mexico and Turkey link the autoimmune thyroid disorder Graves disease to Covid-19 vaccination in numerous female health care workers, including two who were breastfeeding. Pfizer-BioNTech was the vaccine given in Mexico. A Chinese vaccine was given in Turkey. Read more at the link here.

UK:

Updated Dec. 14, 2021: A British study study found people at increased risk of heart inflammation from AstraZeneca (not used in U.S.), Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines.

Update Oct. 30, 2021: A UK study finds “Household Secondary Attack Rate for delta infection, regardless of vaccination status, was 26%” and “peak viral load did not differ by vaccination status.”

Update Oct. 13, 2021: Data from the UK finds vaccines are “highly effective,” but effectiveness wanes after as little as 3-4 months.

Update Oct. 23, 2021: A study of AstraZeneca vaccine (not used in the U.S.) finds 30% preterm birth rate for pregnant women vs. 0% in the control group (among women in S. Africa, Brazil, and UK)

Update Sept. 19, 2021: All brands of Covid-19 vaccines are associated in changes in menstrual cycles of women, according to a British study.

Biologically plausible mechanisms linking immune stimulation with menstrual changes include immunological influences on the hormones driving the menstrual cycle or effects mediated by immune cells in the lining of the uterus, which are involved in the cyclical build-up and breakdown of this tissue. Research exploring a possible association between covid-19 vaccines and menstrual changes may also help understand the mechanism.

Menstrual changes after covid-19 vaccination

Some scientists analyzed adverse event reports and called upon the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency to stop the Covid-19 vaccines as “not safe for human use” due to reports of issues with bleeding/clotting, pain, immune system, neurological, loss of sight/hearing/smell speech, and questions about impact in pregnant women.

Update: Researchers in the United Kingdom are studying two additional cases of Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) in women in their 30s after receiving Covid-19 vaccines.

FND is a neurological disorder involving malfunctioning of the nervous system and how the brain and body transmit signals. Symptoms can include limb weakness, paralysis, tremor, spasms, problems walking, speech problems, tingling, vision loss, seizures, fatigue, anxiety, chronic pain, memory symptoms, and blackouts.

An analysis of Covid-19 vaccine adverse events showed hundreds of thousands of reports of such symptoms.

In January, videos showing vaccine patients suffering such symptoms were treated by media outlets such as Wired as if they were fake news and “dangerous” misinformation.

In fact, the videos garnered the attention of scientists who investigated and concluded they were early warnings of what happens to some who get Covid-19 vaccines.

The newest cases are outlined in the journal Neurology and include:

  • A 38-year old woman who got her first dose of Pfizer’s vaccine and quickly developed weakness around her ear, mouth, left arm and leg. She went to the ER the next day and was diagnosed with Bell’s palsy or a transient ischemic attack. Problems continued months later, including memory issues, and she was diagnosed with FND.
  • A 36-year-old woman who got her second dose of Moderna and quickly noticed weakness in right hand and right leg limping. A day later she reported severe leg heaviness, fatigue, movement difficulties. After physical therapy her right-side weakness improved but she awoke weeks later with left-side weakness, tightness and heaviness in neck, difficulties with daily living, rapid muscle fatigue, dragging right foot, and tremor. She was diagnosed with FND.

United States:

Updated Dec. 30, 2022: A large study conducted in Germany and by the University of Virginia finds mRNA Covid vaccines can trigger shingles outbreaks.

Updated Dec. 29, 2022: Numerous case studies link Covid-19 mRNA vaccines to development of diabetes. Diabetes is also linked to other vaccines.

Updated Oct. 8, 2022: Florida surgeon general advises young men should avoid Covid vaccines due to 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39within 28 days following mRNA vaccination.

Updated Oct. 1, 2022: A study further confirms Covid-19 vaccination leads to a small and hopefully temporary change in menstrual cycle length.

Updated Sept. 1, 2022: A study in the journal Vaccine finds: Excess risk of serious adverse events from Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines outweighs risks from Covid-19 itself. Pfizer vaccine: 36% higher risk of serious adverse events than placebo. Moderna: 6% higher. Combined: 16% higher.

Updated June 18, 2022: The FDA flagged the non-mRNA shot Novavax for heart issues similar to the mRNA vaccines, shortly before recommending the okay for Novavax in the US.

Update June 14, 2022: Pop star Justin Bieber announces he has Ramsay Hunt Syndrome paralysis. Scientists have found a suspected link between herpes/shingles/chickenpox activation or reactivation after Covid-19 vaccine, leading to facial paralysis, hearing loss, tinnitus and other disorders.

A patient with suspected vaccine-triggered Ramsay Hunt paralysis and hearing loss (from British Medical Journal)

Updated May 11, 2022: FDA limits use of Johnson & Johnson vaccine citing risk of thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS): blood clots in combination with low levels of blood platelets.

Update April 26, 2022: Rates of Guillain-Barre “continue to be unusually high after Johnson & Johnson shot” according to a new analysis. “The findings confirm data seen in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) that led to the FDA warning about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in July 2021….A head-to-head comparison showed the Johnson & Johnson vaccine carried a 20% higher risk for Guillain-Barré than the mRNA shots.”

Updated March 12: Multiple studies document vaccine-associated tinnitis, or ringing/noise in one or both ears that can be debilitating.

Updated Feb. 14, 2022: A pathology report on two children who died of heart issues after their second Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine implicates the vaccine as the cause.

Updated Jan. 20, 2022: The FDA has added a warning about immune thrombocytopenia, ITP, to Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.

Update Jan. 13, 2022: A study finds vaccination impacts and delays women’s periods.

Update Dec. 16, 2021: CDC warns of risk of blood clots, Thrombosis with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (TTS), with Johnson & Johnson vaccine and recommends people get Moderna or Pfizer, instead.

Update Dec. 15, 2021: A CDC analysis of adverse events reported to the Vaccine Safety Datalink system confirms an increased risk of Guillain-Barre paralysis after Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccination.

Update Oct. 2021: A study finds link between Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine and Guillain-Barre paralysis.

Update Oct. 2021: A study finds link between Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine and Guillain-Barre paralysis.

Update Nov. 21, 2021: An analysis presented at the American Heart Association and published in the journal Cardiology warns of a “dramatic” increase in heart risk for most people who got Covid-19 RNA vaccine.

Update Nov. 7, 2021: A U.S. study finds after 6 mos. Moderna vaccine effectiveness drops to 60%. Pfizer drops to 49%. J&J drops to 13%. Last yr, FDA’s Dr. Hahn said FDA wouldn’t authorize vaccines that weren’t at least 50% effective.

Update Oct. 4, 2021: A study by university and NIH scientists in the U.S. finds Pfizer vaccine antibodies disappear after about 7 months in many patients.

Update Sept. 12, 2021: A study of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines finds teenage boys are six times more likely to suffer heart issues from Covid-19 vaccination than from Covid. (However, in both instances, the risk is considered slight.)

Update Sept. 9, 2021: An August 10 study in JAMA Cardiology confirms the previously identified Pfizer vaccine’s myocarditis (heart inflammation) risk in young boys.

Read the study here.

Update Sept. 4, 2021: Acute CNS Demyelination and Multiple Sclerosis: A new study in Journal of Neurology examines possible links between Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and acute Central Nervous System (CNS) demyelination, including Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Demyelinating diseases damage the protective covering surrounding nerve fibers in the brain, optic nerves and spinal cord, causing neurological problems. In the study, four patients had the Pfizer vaccine and three had the Moderna vaccine. Within 21 days of the first or second dose, the patients developed active CNS demyelination of the optic nerve, brain, and/or spinal cord leading to “visual loss, dysmetria, gait instability, paresthesias, sphincter disturbance, and limb weakness.”

Age ranged from 24 to 64 years old. Four patients were ultimately diagnoses with exacerbation of their stable MS.

Two were diagnosed with new cases of MS.

One was diagnosed with neuromyelitis optica.

Update Aug. 24, 2021: With evidence of seriously-waning immunity at the five- to six-month mark, CDC is now recommending a third “booster” shot. In highly-vaccinated Israel, recognition that vaccination likely does not confer protection beyond a few months, the country has reimagined its vaccine passports. They will only apply to people who have had three shots, and only be good for a six month period of time.

Update Aug. 16, 2021: Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) (read more here). According to studies:

  • Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) can make vaccinated people more susceptible to serious infection from the virus
  • “ADE may be a concern” for those who have been vaccinated for Covid-19
  • With ADE, after people get vaccinated for an initial virus, infection by a subsequent variant or strain of the virus can result in “increased viral replication and more severe disease, leading to major safety risks”
  • ADE can also “occur when neutralizing antibodies (which bind the virus and stop it from causing infection) are present at low enough levels that they don’t protect against infection. Instead, they can form immune complexes with viral particles, which in turn leads to worse illness”
  • This concern was initially described by some scientists who were subsequently banned from media platforms that incorrectly claimed the scientists were disseminating disinformation

Update Aug. 4, 2021: A new, independent study of medical records found the incidences of myocarditis and pericarditis are more than five times more common than CDC reported.

Update July 12, 2021: The FDA added warnings about Guillain-Barre autoimmune paralysis, in which the immune system attacks the body’s nerves, after Johnson and Johnson vaccine. According to reports, the cases have primarily been reported about two weeks after vaccination, mostly in men, and “any aged 50 and older.”

In late June, the first case of a blood clot disorder called “thrombosis with thrombocytopenia” after an RNA double-dose vaccine was been reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The case was that of a 65-year-old man who developed symptoms ten days after his second dose of the Moderna vaccine. Because the blood clot disorder was not previously warned about in the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, doctors treated the patient with heparin, the very drug that’s not supposed to be used in post-vaccine patients suffering from the disorder because it could actually worsen the condition.

Dr. Peter McCullough, cardiologist and Vice Chief of Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, has called for a halt to vaccinating 30-year olds due to “no clinical benefit” and safety concerns.

A petition of scientists led by Linda Wastila, Professor, Pharmaceutical Health Services Research University of Maryland School of Pharmacy is calling for Covid-19 vaccines to be disapproved.

The Food and Drug Administration has added a new warning to Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines about risk of heart inflammation.

As of June of 2021, CDC said that more than 1,200 cases of heart inflammation (myocarditis of pericarditis) in young people had been reported after Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccination.

  • More than half were after the second dose.
  • Most of the injuries are in males under age 30.

Myocarditis and Other Cardiovascular Complications of the mRNA-Based COVID-19 Vaccines [Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna] in a number of patients are described in a scientific article:

  • Two patients with clinically suspected myocarditis
  • One patient with stress cardiomyopathy 
  • Two patients with pericarditis 

According to the research: 

  • The two patients with clinically suspected myocarditis were otherwise healthy young men who presented with acute substernal chest pressure and/or dyspnea after receiving the second dose of the vaccine and were found to have diffuse ST elevations on electrocardiogram (ECG), elevated cardiac biomarkers and inflammatory markers, and mildly reduced left ventricular (LV) function on echocardiography. Both patients met the modified Lake Louise Criteria for acute myocarditis by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. 
  • A case of stress cardiomyopathy occurred in a 60-year-old woman with known coronary artery disease (CAD) and previously normal LV function, who presented with new exertional symptoms, ECG changes, and apical akinesis following the second dose of the vaccine. 
  • The two patients with pericarditis who presented with chest pain, elevated inflammatory markers, and pericardial effusions after receiving the vaccine.

The Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine was temporarily removed from the market in the U.S. on April 16, 2021 while health officials studied reports of blood clot injuries. Among them was an 18-year old teen named Emma Burkey, who got sick about a week after the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine and ended up having three brain surgeries related to blood clots and seizures.

The Johnson and Johnson vaccine was allowed back on the market April 27, 2021 with new warnings about the disorder.

An editorial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended women under age 50 avoid the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine due to concerns about blood clots. The recommendation discussed 12 case reports of a blood disorder known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) with thrombocytopenia following the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

An otherwise healthy South Florida doctor, Gregory Michael, died of a brain hemorrhage 16 days after he got Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine. Authorities concluded he died of a blood disorder called “immune thrombocytopenia” (ITP) that can prevent blood from clotting and cause internal bleeding. His wife said a blood test showed the level of his platelets to be at “zero.” She said before the shot, Dr. Michael had “absolutely no medical issues” and no underlying conditions. However, authorities later categorized his death as “natural.”

Several clusters of elderly patients in U.S. nursing homes died after Pfizer or Moderna Covid-19 vaccine. In one group, a number of the patients who died tested positive for Covid-19 after vaccination.

CDC falsely claimed that studies showed Covid-19 vaccines are effective for those who already had Covid-19. In fact, studies showed the opposite.

Anonymous sources claimed that up to 60 million doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine had to be thrown out. But the FDA issued a news release saying that two batches from the Baltimore plant were safe to use. The FDA said “several other batches are not suitable for use, but additional batches are still under review.”

According to Epoch Times, in June 2021 nearly 4,000 fully vaccinated people in Massachusetts tested positive for Covid-19. On April 30, “the CDC reported that some 10,626 breakthrough cases were reported in 46 states and territories.” Breakthrough cases are where fully vaccinated people still end up infected with Covid-19.

Scientists hoped that Covid-19 vaccines would be effective in variants of Covid-19, which are mutations that occur naturally with viruses and were always expected with Covid-19. However, the vaccine effectiveness against variants may be limited. CDC and vaccine makers are studying the medical landscape to find out more.

Other states, such as Maine, are noting Covid-19 deaths occurring in fully vaccinated people.

Update Oct. 8, 2021: A study of health care workers in Vietnam found vaccinated people infected with Delta Covid-19 carry “unusually high viral loads” in their nostrils that are “251 times higher.” The study said that during a period when the vaccinated patients are infected but don’t yet know it, they could be responsible for heightened spread to other vaccinated or the unvaccinated. The subjects had been fully vaccinated with AstraZeneca’s vaccine, which is not used in the U.S.

341 thoughts on “(UPDATED) Exclusive Summary: Covid-19 Vaccine Concerns”

    1. A relative of mine pointed out that even the CDC says that people die from the COVID-19 vaccine. So I looked at the data, and it was true, that 7,218 people have died after taking the COVID-19 vaccine. Not all of those were from the vaccine, but let’s say it was. This was after administering 369 million doses of the vaccines. Then I looked into how many people who died from COVID-19 that didn’t take the vaccine. And it turns out that 15 times more people die from COVID-19 if they do not take the vaccine, than those that did take the vaccine. If you combine these two ratios, it comes down that you are 75 million times more likely to die from COVID without taking the vaccine, than with taking the vaccine. Unless I’ve made a mistake, I’m taking the vaccine because I have a 75 million times more likely to live than what would happen to me if I don’t take the vaccine.

      1. Without even bringing the distributions and data into this conversion, gross misapplication of Bayesian probability, the assumptions to try to do these back-of-envelope calculations, and a basic check of deaths of unvaccinated due to COVID versus death attributed to vaccinations, I cannot even decipher how you come up with 7.5 * 10^7 times greater probability with your calculations.

      2. sure ur numbers of deaths are since the begining of the pandemic when you should calculate since the 1st inoculation for u have a fare result, or else no use on those statistics.

      3. So with all of the vax deaths being less than c19 deaths , that makes it okay to be on the market? That makes it okay to push the agenda? I think not. If you yourself want to have the jab that’s fine, but it should not be pushed .

        1. Exactly!! The survival rate of the virus for age 60+ is 99.6%!!! I’ll take my chances with the virus.. I’ve never had the flu, never had a fever, haven’t even had a cold since I can’t even remember. I eat healthy, get a little exercise gardening, take a multivitamin everyday along with extra C and D and Elderberry syrup daily. I’ll be 70 in January!!
          Take care of your body and your body will take care of you!!!

          1. You are completely right. If one doesn’t care about his body (cigarettes, junk food etc.) the body will get sick sooner or later. But otherwise, if you take care, take your Vitamin D and trust in your body you won’t have to take this silly vaccine. Human kind survived all this thousands of years, so it can’t be totally wrong, can it?
            Here in Switzerland they are completely crazy and force you to take the stab like we were in Germany 1941! Don’t let the government force you into this!!

      4. This is patently incorrect. For your hypothesis to have any legs, all PCR testing would have to be 100% accurate and even the NYT reported it’s likely 90% inaccurate.

      5. Please stop. You have absolutely no idea how to do basic math based on your statements much less statistical math.
        In data, there are “key words” that matter when mathematics is put in to context.
        1st- doses is not the same as people.
        2nd – a person only fits in a specific subset of the actual people represented in both data sets.

        You cannot compare a subset with a specific “risk calculation” to a whole and get what you’re looking for.

        1. But CDC considers you are fully vaccinated two week after the 2nd shot. Now watch CDC change their definition once the booster rally takes off and you are only fully vaxed two weeks after the booster!

      6. Not everyone on the planet will get Covid.They have 0 chance of dying or getting sick. By taking the shot they definietly risk getting sick or worse for no reason at all. Your formula didnt include that factor. Hope this helps somebody, if it doesnt
        forgive me. And thanks Mrs. Attkisson for letting us respond .

      7. Unfortunately Terry, your source of Covid related deaths is questionable. If you review some of the death certificates, there are those with up to 4 different co-morbilities, including gun shots, but as long as there was a diagnosis of Covid, the death was ruled “Covid”. Hospitals were paid a bonus for Covid caused deaths.

        Take the drug (not a “vaccine”, btw if you do a little research and please, not from reality tv), and may God be with you.

      8. The article is about short term adverse side effects from the vaccine, not COVID deaths.

        The last VAERS report on Friday, September 10, was 799,000 reported adverse side effects.

        Studies of VAERS suggest no more than 10% of adverse effects ever get reported — and probably much less than 10%.

        The 799,000 included 14,506 deaths and 2.15% and 18,439 permanent disabilities.

        Some percentage of them can be attributed to the vaccines, and others can not be proven to be caused by the vaccines.

        Let’s say 50% and 50%.

        But when you consider the small percentage of adverse side effects ever reported, the REAL number of vaccine-caused deaths and disabilities is likely to be significantly higher than reported. to VAERS.

        This is the most dangerous vaccine in US history, by far, with the fastest deterioration of vaccine induced antibodies ever.

        And the long term adverse side effects remain unknown,

        This article is only listing short term adverse side effects.
        It should day that in the first sentence, but does not.

        Concerning deaths from COVID itself:

        They were a tiny percentage of infections in 2020 after the initial death spike in the Spring (excluding nursing homes) BEFORE there were any vaccines.

        :Less than 5 deaths per 1,000 for people outside of nursing homes (where the death rate was much higher.

        So if the COVID survival rate was 99.5% outside of nursing homes, BEFORE there was a vaccine. … That means even a PERFECT vaccine with no deaths as side effects, could only improve the survival rate by 0.5 percentage points.

        During the two month drug trials for Pfizer and Moderna, before EUA, with about 40,000 people total, roughly 99% of the subjects did not get any COVID symptoms.

        The difference between subjects getting placebos, and subjects getting real vaccines averaged about 1% for both vaccines combines

        So the absolute risk reduction from the vaccines averaged only 1%.

        1. Yes, and yet they reported only the relative risk reduction, which was about 95%. And that was blasted all over the news and everyone believed it.

          This is a favorite trick of the drug companies — report risk reduction as relative, side effect risk as absolute.

          So the vaccines provided a tiny benefit, which declines within a couple of months. And how long will the benefit from boosters last? Another couple of months? The side effect risk will start to surpass the covid risk, if frequent boosters are required.

          Yet people have been convinced they must be vaccinated, or else risk almost certain death from covid.

        2. Well Explained Richard and thank you- however so many people choose to have an emotional response to the narrow bits of info they hear vs having the desire nor capability to CONTEXTULIZE all of the data that is our there, albeit much of it being censored by the most powerful and influential voices- Sadly.

      9. VAERS lists 14,506 Deaths and 675,591 Injuries in the US as of September 3rd, and Eudra-Vigilance, the European Union’s Database of Adverse Drug Reactions, lists 24,526 Deaths and 2,317,495 Injuries as of September 11th. Many of those approximately 3 million Injuries are devastating, and many will lead to a much shortened lifespan.

        https://openvaers.com/covid-data
        https://healthimpactnews.com/2021/24526-deaths-2317495-injuries-following-covid-shots-reported-in-european-unions-database-of-adverse-drug-reactions/

      10. Yeah but they’re also not considering you vaccinated until 2 weeks after your last booster shot, and considering something like 60% of hospital patients have had at least 1 shot and have covid, dont you wonder how many adverse reaction deaths are not actually counted as vaccinated deaths?

      11. You are out of your mind. Your calculations are not valid. The published rate of survival for almost everyone is over 99.9% if less than 70 years old…and that is if the person with COVID-19 does not get ANY treatment. Do some independent research and stop listening to the fake news and media who are suppressing the true science and doctors who are trying to warn the public!!!

      12. Terry,

        Most drugs/vaccines are stopped after 25-50 reported deaths. We have 7-10K reported in VAERS. We have a whistleblower from the CDC who says more like 48k dead. But let’s just say i is low at 5k dead. That’s 100x the previous threshold upper limit of 50 dead to stop a drug or vaccine.

        What you are saying is you are willing to sacrifice another person’s, otherwise healthy, life as a byproduct so you can feel safer. I called that extremely selfish. Reminds me of a scene in one of my kids favorite movies. Maybe you’ve seen it. https://youtu.be/hiKuxfcSrEU

      13. Wrong. It’s just the opposite.
        If you get off mainstream media you will see it’s true.
        As of October 2021 the CDC admits to 15,000 deaths from the vaccine.
        In a normal year there are 100 deaths from the flu vaccine. This year there’s been over 80,000. Smell something fishy?
        And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
        Don’t take it!!

      14. Only problem is that protection from severe covid wanes from two months until it disappears at eight months. So you not only have the risk of dying from covid, but you add the risk of dying from vaccines.

        By contrast, if you have a plan to treat covid early with antivirals, you have far less risk than if you merely get vaccinated–about 20% of the risk for those who have no such plan.

        The vaccines are safe and effective…for pharma, which has bullet-proof immunity from adverse events lawsuits.

      15. It’s the long term effects and the boosters every5-6 months that are a concern.
        Let’s see how many die in the next 2-3 years. I will wait that long in self-isolation to make sure.

      16. The CDC was marking vaccinated people as unvaccinated people if they died within 72 hours after the vaccines they were marked as unvaccinated. Also in Feb of 2020 the CDC had to correct their death numbers as it was updated to only 6% of reported deaths actually died from Covid19 the rest were of other natural deaths. They we’re busted for reporting every death car accident heart attacks as Covid19 deaths. The influenza flu kills 220,000 a year and last year first time in history it killed nobody. CDC says Covid19 has a survival rate of 99.9% for 70 and under a better survival rate than the influenza flu yet we don’t shutdown the country. The vaccines are dangerous and people who are being vaccinated are going to the hospital that’s why nurses and doctors refuse to take the vaccine. My BFF is a nurse who answered hospital phone call and says the people coming in our the ones who are being vaccinated yet if adverse effects happen within 72 hours after shots hospitals protocol from WHO says to mark them as unvaccinated. Their are many cures for Covid19 yet the protocol for hospitals is to use Remdensivir a drug that shuts down and drowns kidneys into complete failure. 1000 doctors suing the WOrld health organization for the protocol killing people my father was one of them. A death rate that could have been prevented as other drugs saving live around the world yet those drugs are forbidden by WHO drugs approved for use yet now banned.

      17. But the cases of deaths and serious side effects(even amputations, and heart attacks etc), are way underreported. A surgeon friend couldn’t even get her own myocarditis reported after the vaccine!

      18. We may never know the actual death count due to various inaccuracies in reporting-anomalies and flaws with VAERS tabulation practices. I also know of several people who received the jabs who now have various symptoms and yet have not reported these new health issues to VAERS. It seems many folks choose to deny the possible connection, even though the adverse reactions occurred within weeks or months of getting the jabs!

      19. “you are 75 million times more likely to die from COVID without taking the vaccine, than with taking the vaccine”

        The last time I checked, somewhere between 6 and 7 million people have died from Covid worldwide, including the 11 or 12 pre-vax months. Your claim makes absolutely no mathematical sense. According to the figure that you cite, 7,218 people have died from the vaccine. But, according to you, if only ONE person died from the vaccine, 75 MILLION unvaccinated people would have died from Covid. If only 10 people died from the vaccine, 750 million unvaccinated people would have died of Covid. If only 100 people died from the vaccine, 7.5 billion unvaccinated people – more than the entire population of the world, vaccinated or not, would have died of Covid.

  1. Nate Klingenstein

    I concur with most of your points, but I would add a big one about immunological imprinting — the difficulty in administering a revised vaccine for a mutated pathogen that the body thinks it already recognizes. You can find plenty in the literature about that.

    I’d also mention ADE, which has been documented to occur in COVID-19.

    Finally, the mRNA vaccines do offer a substantial boost in SARS-CoV-2 immunological metrics to convalescents when administered as a single dose, so I don’t think it’s fair to say that vaccines aren’t effective for convalescents. It may be fair to say they’re unnecessary.

    1. Well they are not safe, untested, dangerous and experimental. So you think people were informed by the criminal MDs that these vaccines are not even approved by the criminals from the FDA, CDC and other health agencies, It is truly a crime against humanity well defined by the Nurenburg Code and the Helsinki Convention. Here are two stories of mine. First my stupid friend I warned not to take it. But he is a TV addict and simple minded. So brainwash worked wonderfully. He ended up after the first shot by Pfizer with a blood clot in the brain and paralysis. Then there is my stupid niece in Israel, We warned her repeatedly with tons of researches and comments done by Dr Michael Yeadon an ex director of Pfizer (and other viroligists) who warned about the dangers of these experimental vaccines. She was pregnant. So guess what happened next. A few days later she lost the baby but rest assured the criminal israeli MDs said to her it is not related.. In both case the MDs did not and will not report the events as a damage resulting from the vaccine., Our politicians are truly criminals to go along
      with what I consider criminals against humanity. All this for a disease that barely kills the ones that get the virus, I truly think we are dealing here with something else than medicine. These people are almost doing it on purpose, Maybe they are.

      1. Freedom Fighter

        DePopulation !!!
        I Personally know of 4 DEAD post vax, 4 young men heart attacks ( ages 19, 20, 22, 23) , 4 miscarriages (4 months, 6 months, 2- 7 month Babies) one blind 19 year old !!!
        This is POISON!
        An experimental bio-weapon- just wait till Infertility rates shoot through the roof!!!
        Crimes against Humanity!

        1. The sad thing is the liberal retards in the US don’t care one bit so long as the overall direction of the country is going the way they want it to go – basically down the toilet.

        2. My nephew, early forties, knows (knew) ten people in his age group who have dropped dead. I only know one person, my cousin, who died of a heart attack at 52 post booster, but I hear a lot of tales of serious health events in vaccinated people. It’s impossible to know for sure how many of those are vax-caused, since no one will admit the possibility.

        1. There’s an article at WND news source 7/20/21 reporting on a Federal lawsuit in Alabama alleging a massive gov coverup of death due to the 3 COVID vaccines. The source for the lawsuit is a gov insider with access to gov computers who is under Federal whistleblower protection and sworn under oath about this coverup, the alleged vaccine death toll is 45,000 and counting.

          1. From America’s Frontline Doctors

            ~Whistleblower Testimony: 45,000 Deaths Caused by the Vaccines .. page 41….
            From the testimony ….

            ” In her expert opinion, VAERS under-reports deaths
            caused by the Vaccines by a conservative factor of at least 5. As of July 9, 2021, VAERS reported 9,048 deaths associated with the Vaccines. Jane Doe queried data from CMS medical claims, and has determined that the number of deaths occurring with 3 days of injection with the Vaccines exceeds those reported by VAERS by a factor of at least 5, indicating that the true number of deaths caused by the Vaccines is at least 45,000.”

    2. Pfizer’s lawyers have clarified that the drug administered for the CV-19 virus is not defined as a “vaccine”–it is in legal parlance: a “prototype.” Although this is a legal tactic in order to defuse potential lawsuits (imagine the scale of a class action suit!), it also reveals exactly what Pfizer and the other drug manufacturers knew from the start: It is an experimental prototype drug and was administered under the Emergency Authorization act, and as such, all test subjects were not making the decision to jab with informed consent. Con-current with what appears as the malice of forethought, the Media acted as an accomplice insofar that the media didn’t make it known that an “experimental” drug trial was a risky proposition and that adverse reactions were predictable(as was mortality.)

  2. Chuck in Richmond

    Private companies are required by law to announce the side effects of their medicines, both verbally and in writing, in their advertising. Public agencies promoting getting shots have not followed the same rules. Silence on the negatives. Thanks for countering their omissions.

    1. Pharmaceutical companies do not announce all of the side of effects from gadolinium, used in MRI contrast. Why would these mRNA delivery systems be any different?

  3. My father-in-law contracted Guillain-Barre Syndrome in March less than two weeks after his second Moderna shot. He went to the ER after collapsing in his yard – he couldn’t stand feet. They tested him for a stroke (negative) and sent him home, but he went back after it got worse. The doctor ordered a GBS test after hearing he’d recently had the vaccine, and it was positive. He was just found free of neurological symptoms this week but still has months of recovery; he was partially paralyzed for weeks and spent four weeks total in a hospital or rehab facility; he has lost 25 pounds and is much more frail; he was unable to do any fine motions with his hands for weeks; had balance issues; had medication issues; suffered all kinds of pain at night and was unable to sleep for weeks and still requires medication to help. And you know what? No one cares, because “at least he didn’t get Covid!” He is in his 80s but was extremely active — driving, doing vigorous yard work including digging up bushes; swimming every day. His active life may now be effectively over. It makes me so angry. GBS is extremely rare, and only a minority of those extremely rare people get it without first being sick with a virus. He wasn’t sick with anything.

    1. Mary Ann Johnston

      Gail, sorry to hear of your father-in-laws adverse reaction. I can sympathize with the family. My father in 1982 was a healthy 52yr old w/no comorbidities and had accumulated a year in hours of sick leave as a civilian at Luke AFB. It was also March that he & my mother went for the flu shot. 2 weeks later they thought he had a heart attack, then thought stroke, then MS until a woman neurologist finally diagnosed him w/GBS. He laid in ICU totally paralyzed on a respirator 3 days short of a year. It really isn’t as rare as they want to claim. I worked with a gal who GBS and a nurse friend said when she first started her nursing career her first 5 patients had GBS. I keep asking so am I predisposed? Why would I want to take this experimental non FDA approved vaccine when I know I there is treatment for a virus that I know I will survive. My husband as had Bells-Palsy. Is he predisposed? As this is another neurological event from an experimental vaccine. There can not be a one size fits all and there must be Informed Consent. Blessings to your father in law.

      1. I got diplopia (double vision) – another cranial nerve affliction like Bell’s Palsy — 10 days after my second pneumococcal shot – it took three months to go away. So yes, i ask too – does this make me pre-disposed for possible “covid” vaccine side effects?

        Watching and waiting before my hand gets forced – by travel requirements – which will be the only way I will even consider this experimental vaccine for a 99% recovery flu.

    2. The symptoms you describe match very closely what my innocent grandschild experienced after vaccination according to CDC schedule . There is no way that ANY expert (and there were many) that examined would diagnose vaccine injury, Always slappped with the label of autism. Now a teen, with decades of early life development stolen by these Mengele-wanna-be s.
      We have since discovered that the biggest block to communication is severe apraxia. Hmmm… wonder where that came from since he was born of two young strong abstentious parents. Their biggest mistake? They believed the lies of the medical industrial complex. But no more. Now this child who has suffered so much pain and torment in the past is FINALLY making progress toward health and some kind of a life. I share this with you because you must question EVERYTHING the medical business tells you is true. Good news– There are still scientists and doctors who actually care about a profession that tells the truth.
      God bless you (keep praying as this trial does not come from the light of God, it comes from the darkness of Satan)

  4. I didn’t see Canada on the adverse effects of the vaccines I don’t want to get any of them. I also have thyroid disease and I look for natural remedies for my problem

  5. It is important that adverse reactions to the Covid vaccines be reported. This news is being repressed by the main-stream media. It is beyond belief that the US government gave approval for mRNA gene therapy on a mass scale without long-term testing. This is a technology that has never been employed in humans and it will be a generation before we know the full extent of the adverse consequences. The U.S. VAERS is recording significant numbers of deaths with potential links to Covid 19 treatments. No one talks about it. No one will ever admit that the decision to authorize this treatment was a mistake.

  6. Why is the regime pushing this on children who are not affected by the kung flu? Why are they pushing this on people that have recovered from the kung flu? There are lots of questions and every day that goes by shows lots of good reasons not to get the mRNA shot but I can’t any good reason to get it particularly after reading this.

    1. The fact sheet tell you after you have be advised by the jabber on the risk you have a right to refuse the shot. It’s not mandated, you volunteer to take your kids to them and allow them to jab your kids. Just say NO!

  7. What about vaccine alternatives? What about the use of HCQ and Vitamin D?
    Also Ivermectin and Dr. Pierre Kory’s MATH Protocol? Ivermectin is cheaper, safer, and effective. According to Dr. Peter McCullough, at Texas A & M in Dallas if ivermectin & HCQ had been used early on, 85% of the lives lost could have b/saved
    What about Frontline Doctors?
    What about Women and Fertility concerns?

  8. Hi Sharyl, At the end of your 7/1/21 podcast on Covid-19 vaccine safety, you said, “…most people will not suffer these very serious adverse events…” This is making a scientific judgment, which I’m not sure it’s wise for you to make. One of the papers you cited in the podcast included concerns over ADE, antibody-dependent enhancement, and nobody knows what the extent of this issue will be. The clinical trials won’t be done for another year and a half, which also adds to the uncertainty about the extent of severe side effects. Also, Luc Montagnier, Geert Vanden Bossche, and others believe the vaccination program is causing more deadly and infectious variants, and we don’t know how many people will be hospitalized or die. So there are still too many unknowns. Also, your statement is so vague it can hardly reassure anybody. If 49% of the vaccinated eventually have “very serious adverse events”, your statement will have been technically correct, but how is that solace for anybody?

  9. Anthony Dragunas Jr.

    I am fighting with my parents over vaccination of my 12 year old daughter! She’s healthy no preexisting conditions whatsoever! It’s my understanding that young healthy children are not getting COVID unless they have preexisting conditions as per Hopkins recent publications!
    I personally am vaccinated. I am 54 yrs. of age . High blood pressure & recent mild heart attack . Not to mention the Covid 47 lbs. syndrome! I have really put on the pounds since the lock downs ! But I am very concerned that my daughters school will make rules that shame young people & their parents to take the vaccine or else! Face the mob ! My daughter has all her required school vaccinations. I am just another concerned parent & I am looking at the Health risks -VS- Benefit to my healthy young daughter ! If the teachers are vaccinated why mask our children? The teachers Unions have been bullying us parents & are so political; it’s ridiculous! Cheryl Atkinson is a fantastic independent journalist I enjoy watching her show most weekends! God bless America!
    ???MAGA Movement ???

    1. lawrence falkenstein

      Personally, I’d favor a healthy immune system, such as your daughters, against a coronavirus over a so-called vaccine that quickly loses its effectiveness.

    2. In your response you mention you got “vaccinated” …with one of the Covid jabs? You then go on to state HBP and a recent ‘mild heart attack.’ Are you not putting two and two together at this point? Realize there are so many people who have had the jab and are getting MI’s…..
      ….do not put this garbage into your child and by all means DO NOT get a third poke!

  10. Great article.
    Good website.
    I don’t understand why I waited until last week
    to see if Sharyl had a website

    New VAERS data released today
    for the week ending July 16, 2021:

    I find the data hard to believe.

    A HUGE +90,000 more adverse reactions added this week
    But only very tiny +265 of them are said to be deaths.
    After +2000 more deaths reported in each of the prior two weeks

    I am trained to spot BS — I have a BS degree.
    My internal BS meter is flashing.

    I noticed Antonio Chaves has commented here.
    I’ve read several of his articles at American Thinker.
    His comments here are hard to believe.
    But I believe them.
    My internal BS meter does not flash
    when I read his articles and comments.

    Of course we have no idea what the long term adverse vaccine effects will be.

    But judging by the unprecedented number of adverse side effects so far,
    it would seem like wishful thinking to expect minor long term adverse effects.

    I have not taken the vaccine, or any other vaccine in the past 60 years.
    I’m not anti-vaxx, but had a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine as a child.
    And that was my last vaccine ever — not even a smallpox vaccine.
    I would never take an experimental vaccine, whether i had allergies or not.

    The absolute risk reductions for the current vaccines were tiny:
    — The relative risk reduction (RRR) is best for selling vaccines
    — The absolute risk reduction (ARR) is meaningful for the general public.

    Vaccine ………….RRR……….ARR
    Pfizer…………………..95%………..0.84%
    Moderna…………..94%………..1.2%
    Gamaleya………..91%…………0.93%
    John. & John……67%……….1.2%
    AstraZeneca … 67%………..1.3%

    1. Let me add additional information to my prior comment:

      The risk reductions shown were ONLY for “mild COVID symptoms”
      and did not include the much rarer “severe COVID symptoms”

      Severe COVID symptoms do not include death, because no one died in those two months, whether COVID vaccinated or placebo vaccinated.. So the trial did not prove the vaccines prevent death, although that is a reasonable assumption from the results. The vaccines do not prevent infections — they lessen symptoms, and hopefully prevent people from needing to go to hospitals.

      In Israel l the effectiveness of the Moderna and Pfizer medicines on the Delta variant have been poor. There are also indications from Israel that the vaccine inspired antibodies begin losing effectiveness after six months and an annual booster shot will be needed.

      The long term effects of tricking the human body into manufacturing spike proteins is unknown. These experimental medications did not have animal tests. Or long term human tests.

      Prior attempts to use mRNA technology for other diseases, which were all failures, had been animal killers. That potential problem was avoided this time by skipping animal testing.

      I dod not have the “severe COVID symptoms” risk reduction numbers for all the vaccines, but I do have them for the two most common vaccines:. Much smaller for the Pfizer vaccine:

      Moderna absolute risk reduction of severe COVID symptoms only = 0.22%

      Pfizer absolute risk reduction of severe COVID symptoms only = 0.035%

      You can add these numbers to the ARR numbers for mild COVID symptoms in my prior comment.

      The numbers are based on only two months of testing, on a batch of healthy people (above average), between the ages of 18 and 55. There may have been a few subjects over 55. None of the subjects were pregnant.

  11. Thanks for the article Sharyl A. have passed it on. It’s rather ghoulish to use the entire world population as guinea pigs me thinks.

  12. The link with Linda Wastila’s name takes you to regulations.gov but it does not show the petition and instead gives several canned reasons for it not being there. More censorship?

  13. Sharyll, please remove the reference to an affiliation with Baylor when you refer to Dr. McCullogh. He separated from Baylor some time ago and this is just what they are suing him for. Baylor Scott and White in Dallas is engaging in a punitive lawsuit against Dr. Mc Cullough that is frivolous and does not disguise their underlying motive which is to silence a voice of authority, respect and expertise who reports the DATA on the substantial safety issues related to these vaccines and who has said from early in the pandemic that safe, effective, inexpensive is available.

  14. Marc Maximilien Authier

    Fantastic article. Sums up in detail what is going across the globe not just in USA. Very good journalism !!!!! Lets face it. THEY WANT US DEAD. The dark agenda here is mass extermination of most of us by the evil nazi like globalists. I used to think Alex Jones was a little bit of a nut. He still is but strangely he was spot on. The globalist agenda is genocide !!!!! The vaccine now is killing more people than even the virus. We have zero evidence that it immunize. Worse it is mutating the virus and making it more potent. They call the phenomena ADE antibody dependent enhancement or pathogenic priming. In sum our criminal mass murdering politicians are working real hard at creating an even bigger pandemic to democide billlions of humans !!!!!!! I know it seems stuff from a dystopian science fiction novel but look at the numbers.. The vaccines are UNSAFE, UNTESTED, DEADLY, DANGEROUS weird experimental gene therapies and they are now killing and damaging people in the millions !!!!!! We will need another Nurenburg trial for these new NAZIS !!!!!

  15. Dear Sharyl
    Since your last show on natural immunity protection, the data is now unequivocal that it is the best protection specially when vaccines failure is evident and breakthrough infections are soaring worldwide
    .
    Below is the data summary we commented in JAMA for the readers; would like you to produce another show to reflect this new evidence .

    June 8, 2021
    We must stop ignoring natural immunity – it’s now long overdue
    Manish Joshi, MD

    This article by Vitale et al. (https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/2780557) is another addition to a growing body of literature supporting the conclusion that natural immunity confers robust, durable, and high-level protection against COVID-19 (1-4). Yet some scientific journals, editorial commentary associated with this article, and public policy messaging continue to cast doubt. That doubt has real-world consequences, especially, for resource limited countries. We would like to review available data.

    Infection generates immunity. The “SIREN” study in the Lancet addressed the relationships between seropositivity in people with previous COVID-19 infection and subsequent risk of severe acute respiratory syndrome due to SARS-CoV-2 infection over the subsequent 7-12 months (1). Prior infection decreased risk of symptomatic re-infection by 93%. A large cohort study published in JAMA Internal Medicine looked at 3.2 million US patients and showed that the risk of infection was significantly lower (0.3%) in seropositive patients v/s those who are seronegative (3%) (2).

    Perhaps even more important to the question of duration of immunity is a recent study that has demonstrated the presence of long-lived memory immune cells in those who have recovered from COVID-19 (3). This implies a prolonged (perhaps years) capacity to respond to new infection with new antibodies.

    In contrast to this collective data demonstrating both adequate and long-lasting protection in those who have recovered from COVID-19, the duration of vaccine-induced immunity is not fully known. To date >10,000 breakthrough infections (2 weeks after completion of vaccination) have been reported by CDC in the US, with a mortality of ~2% (5).

    How should we use the collective data to prioritize vaccination? These new data support simple and logical concepts. The goal of vaccination is to generate memory cells that can recognize SARS-CoV-2 and rapidly generate neutralizing antibodies that either prevent or mitigate both infection and transmission. Those who have survived COVID-19 must almost by definition have mounted an effective immune response; it is not surprising that the evolving literature shows that prior infection decreases vulnerability. In our view, the data suggest that people confirmed to have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 may not need vaccination, and do not need vaccination in the short term. Given the number of persons who have been infected, this simple approach could free up vaccine (estimated ~200 million doses) for the more vulnerable population around the globe and could accelerate vaccine roll-out tremendously for those in need.(6) We should not be debating the implications of prior infection; we should be debating how to confirm prior infection.

    1. Agree. As a follow-up, maybe a very relevant question is the following:

      What is the safest protocol for intentionally getting infected w/ COVID to not only recover quickly and w/o Long COVID residuals, but developing a durable and prolonged immunity to COVID and its future variants?

  16. RICHARD R BAUMGARTNER

    Sharyl,

    Thank you for all the resources that you have included. You would do yourself and your readers a favor by interviewing Dr. Bret Weinstein and Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr Robert Maline and Mr Steve Kirsch, who appear with Weinstein on Rumble. Dr Kroy appeared before the Senate and was ridiculed by the minority as being political. The above mentioned men are trying to get the truth out and their story is compelling. Please interview or refer to their research. Thanks.

  17. This info is really scary, and what is even more unnerving is it seems lots of people don’t even have a clue, as to the real issues at hand. Without some knowledge as to either the pros and cons of the issue how can you make good decision. Second, why is it that when people speak out against the vaccine or virus they get either censored or fact checked? First obvious question on the fact checkers, who did they vote for? These fact checkers are not independent or neutral, as they want us to believe, witch plays into their conclusion. As they say Garbage in Garbage out! So when people say they are going to fact check, it really doesn’t mean anything! Maybe just another viewpoint that agrees with the asker. Censorship speaks for itself, as to what are they trying to hide? When something gets censored it tells you, that you better take second look at what’s censored and why?

  18. Regarding this paragraph:

    “Previously-infected
    CDC falsely claimed that studies showed Covid-19 vaccines are effective for those who already had Covid-19. In fact, studies showed the opposite.”

    I have followed the link and tried to find the original data that Congressman Thomas Massie is referring to but I cannot find it. Right now I just have Congressman Thomas Massie’s word but no actual data. If the congressman (and this report) is stating the CDC is lying, there should be a link to the CDC statement and a link to the data used which demonstrates their statement is false. I hope to eventually see a link.

  19. This is the first and only summary of adverse vaccine reactions I’ve found. My sister died two weeks ago of TTP (“thrombosis with thrombocytopenia”). She was one of the healthiest people I know before she got vaccinated. Three weeks after her second dose she was in the ER, the first of many trips there. The local hospital was completely flummoxed by the plethora of issues she was presenting: extreme gastrointestinal disorder; heart problems that numerous cardiologists could not identify; kidney failure and finally, blood clotting in her brain and a stroke. All were finally linked to micro-clotting throughout her bloodstream affecting all the major organs. Shortly before she passed the team of doctors treating her for TTP changed the diagnosis to something similar but even more rare than TTP and not associated with adverse vaccine reaction. They didn’t even wait for lab confirmation of the new diagnosis before they put it on her death certificate. Now we’re having problems getting the result of the lab test. No one else wants to talk about potential risks of vaccines and politicians want to mandate everyone get them. The adverse reactions are rare, but people should be able to get the information and evaluate the risk for themselves. The entire response to this virus has been autocratic and even the doctors and “science” have succumbed to the plague of autocratic certainty.

  20. Despite all of these safety concerns raised by medical experts in numerous countries, the medical and political establishment (supported by the media) continues its frenzy for universal vaccination and the ostracism of the unvaccinated. Is anyone surprised that “conspiracy theories” abound?

  21. Such an excellent and comprehensive statement against the prevailing media smog blowing. I wouldn’t let that needle anywhere near my body. Same goes for a flue shot.

  22. As Covid Cases Surge, CDC Does Not Legally ‘Allow’ Americans to Know Variant They Are Infected With

    “The process of validating a next-generation sequencing test is burdensome,” Wroblewski said. “It takes a lot of time. It takes a lot of data. It takes a lot of resources. And the thing about the variants is that variants of concern and of interest are constantly changing, so you would have to do a whole validation every time you have a variant.”

    Thus, the process for discovering if a particular Covid case is a specific ‘variant’ is not currently allowed for under the law.

    “The letter of the law from CMS is that if you don’t go through this full validation process, you cannot release the results with patient identifying information,” Wroblewski said.

  23. Hi Sharyl, Just started reading this article. I have read your articles in the past you are what I consider
    ‘A truth seeker” This is great research and data you have put forth.

    Here’s a guy that has been so correct over the past 20 months or more.
    His latest article has the latest JAMA study and he goes on to unpack it.
    His conclusion ” These vaccines are worthless” probably doing more harm than good.
    please take the time to read him.

  24. Thomas Gearhart Sr.r

    My 90 year old Dad died 3 days after getting the 1st Pfiser shot on 3-1-21. He had abdomenal pain that got progressively worse. ICU Dr told me that the CAT scan found blood clots in his abdomen. I reported this to VAERS. Please add my story to your list.

  25. The vaccines weren’t created for the virus. The vaccines were waiting for the virus. For the US to have not 1 but 3 covid-19 vaccines ready for testing within months and ready for EUA use in less than 8 months is unprecedented. Six covid-19 vaccines globally… impossible.

  26. Sharyl, yours is a monumental service to humanity, stemming from a very strong talent and ability to follow through. Thank you.

  27. Has anyone done a study from the Vaers reporting system that identifies how long after having a Covid 19 vaccine (of any type) that the adverse reaction occurred. The argument against drawing a correlation in the vaers data is that there would be an unknown percentage of events that relate to coincidence. In other words, if someone has heart attack (just an example) two weeks after the vaccine, the correlation is weaker than if it occurred within 24 or 48 hours. I saw someone quote a percentage that related to adverse reaction within 24 hours and 48 hours, but there was no source for the analysis.

  28. I guessing the following question can be easily answered with a “no” but I will ask nonetheless;

    Has any independent laboratory done a complete examination, analysis of the vaccine contents from all four companies? A Dr, Young supposedly has done such an investigation found here; https://www.thelibertybeacon.com/dr-robert-young-finds-graphene-oxide-in-all-four-vaccines-and-other-disturbing-ingredients/. Though I am not sure if it has been confirmed.

    Frankly, if an when these big pharmas release whats actually in their vaccines I would not trust them to be truthful.

  29. Thanks for all your great research Sharyl, can you please clarify where this updated info is? Can’t find it here on page….
    Updated Sept.10,2021 with Israel study on majority of hospitalized being vaccinated

    1. I think I included at bottom with studies and also within, search the post for “Israel” sorry for the inconvenience.

  30. WELL-Sourced in American Greatness: Why Believing in Long-Term Vaccine Safety Is Simply Irrational

    Whether or not to get vaccinated is a decision that must be weighed differently and individually by each American. Such decisions must remain in the core domain of personal liberty.

    FTA: We are told repeatedly and in ever-more-strident tones that the newly developed COVID vaccines are “safe and effective.” We are told that the elites are starting to lose patience with us and, thus, are resorting to authoritarian measures to mandate compliance. Ironically, we are told by people who routinely label President Trump a “fascist” that we must be forced, for their sake, to undergo experimental medical procedures for which they cannot be held liable should anything go wrong. We are told that if we do not subscribe to the gospel they are preaching, we are science-deniers. And when we dare to raise our voices in protest, the faceless tech monopolies that do their bidding label us dangerous nonconformists and silence us.

    The problem is that neither science nor basic logic is on their side. The simple argument against their position does not require a Ph.D. in epidemiology to understand. But, in fact, the Ph.D.s already get it, as do those with only a high school education. Indeed, proving Alexander Pope’s quip that “a little learning is a dangerous thing,” it is those in between—the ones who have the false confidence that comes from thinking themselves “educated” but whose educations are not as thorough as that of some others—who are the least vaccine-hesitant group in America. The Ph.D.s and those who have not submitted to the indoctrination of our education establishment are the ones who have not lost touch with the elementary common sense it takes to know that when the government comes a-knocking to offer to stick you with a syringe loaded with a rushed, experimental vaccine based on a new technology being implemented for the first time ever, a bit of “hesitancy” might be in order.

    A Blur of Contradictions
    Here is the simple argument: consider, first, how virtually everything you were told about COVID and the vaccines turned out to be wrong again and again and again. (Note that every single one of the links that follow is from a mainstream source and, in fact, I will not cite anything from a remotely questionable source in this entire article):

    You don’t need to wear a mask unless you’re sick. Everyone should wear a mask. If you’ve been vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask. Even the vaccinated need to mask up. You need to sanitize your hands, wipe down all surfaces and clean your home on a daily basis. COVID isn’t really passed through surface-to-surface contact. COVID is a respiratory disease. No, COVID is a vascular disease.

    We’re going to lock down for 15 days to slow the spread. We’re going to lock down for months on end. Now we can celebrate because COVID is over. COVID is back and might clear up by spring 2022 . . . or is it fall 2022? COVID will be with us forever now. COVID definitely did not leak from a lab, and that’s a debunked conspiracy theory. There’s a good chance COVID leaked from a lab. The death rate from COVID might be well over 1 percent. The death rate from COVID might be 0.65 percent. Or maybe more like 0.8 percent.

    The herd immunity threshold is 67 percent. Or maybe far, far lower than that. Or is it significantly higher, closer to 80 percent? To tell you the truth, herd immunity might be unattainable. (more)

  31. Thank you for your reporting by investigating and compiling this information. It’s sad that we live in a world where information and scientific debate is shutdown on a global problem. The reason I originally decided not to get the jab was due to the censorship around the whole Covid topic and the sense that the world was being fed a narrative with leaders/media following a script. Now I’m convinced that it’s all a script for a purpose other than the best interest of humanity. God help us!

  32. Thank you for exposing! Here are two additional sites worth tracking: (https://chemicalviolence.com), https://thecovidblog.com/). I have seen nothing from any reputable origin that is good about these vaccines. I’ve been doing a running list for about 6 weeks. I happen to be someone that got Guillain-Barre syndrome from a flu shot in the early nineties and still suffer from residual neurological symptoms. This is real. This is a movement to depopulate the world (see depopulation.com). There is no longer any such thing as health “care”. Hospitals are letting people die untreated. Everyday they are committing medical kidnapping by not allowing any family advocates so they can do their killing without accountability. People, including young people, are dying right and left and hospitals are hiding it under the rug. As soon as anyone blows a whistle, they are fired. Please continue exposing the truth!

  33. Add high anxiety and anger to the list. My adult developmentally disabled daughter ended up in the psyche ward after 2nd booster of Moderna in April. She is still struggling with anxiety and anger. I advised her not to take the shots, her dr yelled at her and told her she would die if she got covid and wasn’t vaccinated.

  34. Great, thorough information. Thank you for your research and investigative journalism.
    Please don’t compromise and keep reporting truth.

  35. my brother died from Moderna on feb 19 2021. Sheryl, do you have a place i can record this? I already did Vaers, but not sure it they keep it recorded.

    1. I’m so sorry. VAERS is the main place I know of, though the vaccine companies should also be trying to track individually so you might also try contacting and reporting to Moderna.

  36. Ask yourself why the government and big tech are censoring reports of successful use of Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, and budesonide. They are doing it to allow the EUA and promotion of the use of a vaccine for an illness from which more than 99% of people recover. There is no need for all this misery and fear. We should be allowed to talk about and study any methods that can be used successfully to treat this virus.
    Big tech is in bed with the government and Big Pharma to control the population of the entire world through fear with a nice little side benefit of making a huge pile of money, depopulating the earth, and ushering in the NWO so that all of us free people will be subject to the control of a few petty tyrants! This entire pandemic is nothing but evil incarnated!

  37. Good information Sharyl!

    Please look into the Stew Peters Show of July 28th with Karen Kingston, former pfizer employee who has tracked down the MSDS sheet of their shots. They are full of the toxin graphine oxide.

    https://rumble.com/vkgdq7-deadly-shots-former-pfizer-employee-confirms-poison-in-covid-vaccine.html

    Also Orwell City on Telegram broke with this story about the graphine oxide with slides showing it in the viles June 24th. They discovered this after seeing all the videos of people becoming magnetic after the shots.

    https://www.orwell.city/2021/06/graphene-oxide-in-vaccination-vials.html

    The graphine oxide in the body becomes activated by impulses from 5G towers etc. It damages the cells causing the symptoms of the covid virus. Their further investigations have them speculating that it is radiation poisoning happenind. People with geiger counters are testing the strength of the radiation coming from these towers etc.

    More slides of the vaccines by Dr. Robert Young. These also show besides the graphine oxide the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi in slide #13.

    https://www.drrobertyoung.com/post/transmission-electron-microscopy-reveals-graphene-oxide-in-cov-19-vaccines

    These shots are bioweapons causing genocide. Someone needs to make this censored information known world wide. Please help Sharyl!

  38. What concerns me is that so many states – including several with high vaccination rates – are experiencing steep rises in infection rates, and some also in deaths. You would think that with a significant majority of the adult and vulnerable populations vaccinated, along with millions more with natural immunity from having survived the virus, that new outbreaks would involve far fewer numbers.

    But that is not happening, and numerous states are seeing the highest number of new infections since the pandemic began, and that includes some states with high vax numbers. Is it possible – as some critics have predicted – that a premature rush to vaccination has actually hurt overall immunity, so that we keep “starting over,” so to speak?

  39. I’ve noticed that a lot of the critics of vaccine hesitancy focus on the far-out claims, like the vaccines are actually chip implants or will magnetize you or turn yu into a radio transmitter. The serious claims about things lie blood clotting and heart inflammation are usually ignored. This is even true of many conservative defenders of the vaccines.

  40. We hear about side effects on the female reproductive system because women are more willing to talk about such things than men, but let’s not leave out the side effects on the male reproductive system. And what does that mean for the next generation?

  41. My brother-in-law had the “vaccine” and later got Covid (fever and loss of taste and smell for 13 days) a month later he had appendicitis and spent a week in the hospital after it almost burst. Crazy.

  42. Here in Washington State, there’s a pro-vaccine PSA on TV in which the spokesman says there is no evidence that the vaccines pose any kind of a threat to pregnant women or their children. At best, that is a claim from ignorance. At worst it is a denial of the fact that some adverse effects on pregnant women HAVE been reported, even though the connection may prove to be coincidental and not causal. However, I have also seen a couple of reports in which some researchers have found evidence of vaccines “leaching” into the cervix and uterus, with possible long-term harmful effects.

    1. I’m letting this comment appear even though it’s false. As always, I encourage people to do their own research.

      1. Please watch this clip from 8-27-2021 of Dr Peter McCullough. It is long, but vital to our survival that more people know the truth of Covid and the vaccines. I know your time is valuable, but many lives hang in the balance. Especially now that they are vaccinating 5 to 11 year olds. Please!

  43. Please watch Sen Ron Johnson’s whole statement. Back up clip to the 5:30 min mark to start listening. Don’t let this get buried or deleted.

    Senator Ron Johnson Presented On The Floor Of The Senate Data Out Of England And Israel Showing The Numbers Of Vaccinated That Are Dying Compared To The Unvaccinated…

  44. From an Italian ambulance doctor who responds to 911 (118) calls: The “vaccines” cause people to die from diseases they’ve already had and survived, which return and kill them after they’ve taken the jab.

    “The cause-effect link is difficult to establish. Because it seems that each of these victims dies from the flare-up of things he already had. Therefore, these drugs kill in a subtle way, because the tip of the iceberg, the one you see above the sea, are the previous pathologies; the largest part, the one that is not seen, consists in the administration of these experimental drugs, which caused the revitalization and resurgence of these pathologies.”

    https://voxday.net/2021/10/06/a-silent-and-dutiful-massacre

    Truly Satanic.

  45. When the covid hoax was created in 2020 i knew then it was merely a scare tactic in order to con the flock into voluntarily giving up liberty or worse but it wasn’t clear what the ultimate goal was till months later.
    The mass “free testing” gave it away to me immediately because they demanded ALL information about you in order to be “tested” and they took a sample of your DNA.
    Then it hit me that this was merely a mass DNA registration scam.
    Then the year 2030 and 2050 deadlines as well as the climate change hoax and the green new deal all seemed to converge.
    The depopulation of the planet is the main goal of many billionaire think tanks around the world but they needed to have the cooperation of the people in order to carry it out.
    So the covid 19 “vaccines” were born.
    The perfect way to sterilize billions and kill off millions and with the media’s help the people would happily line up by the millions for these genocide jabs.
    The word “sustainable” is now used a hundred times a day on commercials, radio ads, news casts etc and what it REALLY means is having a “sustainable” world population.
    Which according to most experts is less than a billion people.

  46. Hi Sharyl, readers,
    Today I came across a link to Pfizer’s clinical trial protocols:
    https://cdn.pfizer.com/pfizercom/2020-11/C4591001_Clinical_Protocol_Nov2020.pdf

    Remember earlier this year when there were reports of menstrual abnormalities among women even when they hadn’t gotten a vaccine but were simply around someone who did? Including pre-menstrual girls as well as post-menopausal women? Initially it was denied as sounding too crazy, but eventually it was taken seriously and I believe was even reported in Newsweek. So… what could cause that?

    Turns out, Pfizer’s own instructions say to report Exposures During Pregnancy (EDP), including from inhalation and skin contact. This goes for women being exposed to someone who had the vax but also being exposed to others who were themselves exposed (so, 2 removed)! I’m quoting from pages 67 ff from the above link (I’ve added ** because I can’t bold.) I believe SAE stands for “serious adverse event.” Also note: Pfizer is keeping track of these, but they don’t appear to be reporting outside (which I believe is the CRF)

    8.3.5.1. Exposure During Pregnancy An EDP occurs if: • A female participant is found to be pregnant while receiving or after discontinuing study intervention. • A male participant who is receiving or has discontinued study intervention exposes a female partner prior to or around the time of conception. • A female is found to be pregnant *while being exposed or having been exposed to study intervention due to environmental exposure*. Below are examples of environmental exposure during pregnancy: • A female family member or healthcare provider reports that she is pregnant after having been exposed to the study intervention *by inhalation or skin contact.*

    A male family member or healthcare provider who has been exposed to the study intervention *by inhalation or skin contact* then exposes his female partner prior to or around the time of conception. The investigator must report EDP to Pfizer Safety within 24 hours of the investigator’s awareness, irrespective of whether an SAE has occurred. The initial information submitted should include the anticipated date of delivery (see below for information related to termination of pregnancy). • If EDP occurs in a participant or a participant’s partner, the investigator must report this information to Pfizer Safety on the Vaccine SAE Report Form and an EDP Supplemental Form, regardless of whether an SAE has occurred. Details of the pregnancy will be collected after the start of study intervention and until 6 months after the last dose of study intervention. • If EDP occurs in the setting of environmental exposure, the investigator must report information to Pfizer Safety using the Vaccine SAE Report Form and EDP Supplemental Form. *Since the exposure information does not pertain to the participant enrolled in the study, the information is not recorded on a CRF; however, a copy of the completed Vaccine SAE Report Form is maintained in the investigator site file.* Follow-up is conducted to obtain general information on the pregnancy and its outcome for all EDP reports with an unknown outcome. The investigator will follow the pregnancy until completion (or until pregnancy termination) and notify Pfizer Safety of the outcome as a follow-up to the initial EDP Supplemental Form. In the case of a live birth, the structural integrity of the neonate can be assessed at the time of birth. In the event of a termination, the reason(s) for termination should be specified and, if clinically possible, the structural integrity of the terminated fetus should be assessed by gross visual inspection (unless preprocedure test findings are conclusive for a congenital anomaly and the findings are reported).

    ———————
    So how could there be a transmission through inhalation or skin contact? It reminded me of the study of vaccinated female mice who transmitted a fertility-inhibiting substance to other mice merely by being around them. Dr. Lee Merritt discusses that study in this interview;
    https://thenewamerican.com/covid-vaccine-shedding-hurting-unvaxed-dr-lee-merritt-explains/

    Speaking of Pfizer, by now you’ve likely seen the Project Veritas interview with the Pfizer whistleblower re: use of fetal cells in testing the vaccines:
    https://www.projectveritas.com/news/pfizer-leaks-whistleblower-goes-on-record-reveals-internal-emails-from-chief/

    James O’Keefe reports that he’s receiving thousands of inquiries from potential whistleblowers. I bet you are too.

    All best,
    Shannon

  47. I love your posts and what you do. Lots of baby, but occasionally there’s a

    Bathwater issue

    The Vietnam report about higher viral loads in vaccinated people compared vaccinated people carrying Delta with unvaccinated people who carried the original strain. This is an apples and oranges comparison. A valid comparison would use data from the same time frame.

    The Vietnam study is not useless, however. It clearly shows that vaccination doesn’t reduce viral load or transmission, which has implications for vaccine mandates.

  48. There’s a potentially very interesting story you might do which could have implications for RICO lawsuits against pharma, the FDA, and the CDC. It might be enough to give some attorneys room during discovery to get access to emails.

    I’ll give you some of the material here.

    Background

    In Jan. 2020, the CDC advised for physicians to treat high risk patients early with antivirals, even before lab results were obtained. However, the FDA advised to only treat covid very late in hospitals in the context of clinical trials with HCQ, which is an antiviral.

    So why the disparity in treatment times between the CDC and FDA?

    The CDC pushed hard for late covid treatment studies of HCQ, which is strange considering their recommendation to treat influenza early with antivirals. Why didn’t the CDC push hard for early treatment studies, which would be in line with their recommendation for influenza?

    I asked these questions of [insert the names of CDC and FDA press people here].

    Then you get some interviews where you ask these questions of the appropriate people. You find out who at the CDC were involved in the influenza treatment recommendation and who at the FDA were involved in the covid treatment recommendation. You find out who at the CDC were involved in pushing late treatment studies of covid with HCQ and who ought to have been pushing hard for early treatment studies of covid with HCQ. Then you ask them the questions which I previously expressed.

    Dr. Peter McCullough might be able to provide you with some of these names.

    If we can show fraud from pharma, the FDA, and the CDC, we might be able to get the courts to strike down protection for pharma’s vaccines.

  49. Breaking (October 16th): Canadian teen dies of heart attack two weeks after mandatory Covid vaccination to play on his youth hockey team. Adverse reactions started almost immediately after the vax.

  50. This is a dubbed press conference from Germany held on 9/20/2021 by pathologists, other doctors, and scientists
    (2+hours long)

    CAUSE OF DEATH AFTER COVID-19 VACCINATION (lymphocytes gone amok and strange things that these experienced pathologists have never seen)
    UNDECLARED COMPONENTS OF THE COVID-19 VACCINES (metal looking things some with sharp edges that a number of scientists have observed across batches and manufacturers)

    https://pathologie-konferenz.de/en/?fbclid=IwAR1RHhUFg1-DX7rr0ah6mRm8vpuPwlTrFgfchqHLZZhsekOYiH5DC-WStAE

  51. The category of “symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical and laboratory findings not elsewhere” in the CDC mortality database has shown an alarming exponential growth since January.

    https://catalog.data.gov/dataset/weekly-counts-of-deaths-by-state-and-select-causes-2019-2020

    .If the projection holds (the week of 9/11 alone had 3,775 deaths, last year’s baseline was a little under 700 per week) (counts for recent weeks are not complete), we will have more than 5,000 deaths in this category just for this week above the baseline from last year.

    If we are looking at autoimmune issues as suggested by the German pathology reports, we may be looking at death counts that doesn’t fall into any of the other normal categories that CDC tracks. And the delay from vaccine to onset of symptoms to deaths would be expected.

  52. Ty for remaining uncompromised as a journalist and for having the courage and integrity to stay true to yourself and to your practice of your profession which, aside from divine intervention, has the power to literally determine the fate of nations and of humanity–be it for better or for worse. The news media is to the people what the shepherd is to the sheep. Tragically, it appears they share a common destination. With the slaughterhouse in full view, there is still one thing that can save us: the TRUTH. It is due to heroes like you that the truth IS being told and IS out there to set us free if only we would receive it! Indeed, an ‘awakening’ to the truth IS spreading exponentially. But is it too little too late? Or will enough of us open our eyes in time to take our destiny back into our own hands, individually and as a Republic, that above all else, is free?

  53. “Updated Nov. 7, 2021 with study showing 2 of 3 U.S. vaccines under 50% effectiveness after 6 mos.”

    So we really can’t say who is infecting who, despite the establishment’s imlication that only the unvaccinated can spread the disease.

  54. The biggest concerns, it seems to me, are that the CDC hasn’t published any autopsy reports about covid vaccine death reports in VAERS nor has it issued any reports about any cases it deems “minor”, including severe fatigue and weakness that prevents physicians from working in medicine.

  55. Something New occurred to me with this Virus causing inflammation in a lot of people ending up in Hospital and many passing away from and or ( Long Hauler problems with underlying un-diagnosed, lighter cystic fibrosis conditions ) worsening conditions both in Adults and Children, the Center for disease control needs to look into ??? People and children with un-diagnosed Cystic fibrosis that is a disease causing lung problems anyhow !. { Example; } > If a child has earlier milder form of un-diagnosed cystic fibrosis and is subject to this virus and it’s known inflammation problems in children what then ??? Also in older people with aging cystic fibrosis and this viruses effect on lung problems anyhow ?

  56. So glad to be able to read this. Past attempts to open this article met with the “404” item. Seemed they were trying to censure you!

  57. The FDA VRBPAC Committee meeting for Pfizer voted against allowing boosters for 18+ in “high risk” occupations, the CDC director overrode them. The following meeting for Moderna and Janssen boosters, a committee member expressed frustration at being called to once again evaluate limited data only to have everything approved anyway so why were they being asked to meet. It does not surprise me at all that the FDA and CDC went ahead and approved boosters for everyone without convening the VRBPAC committee. They don’t care about people being vaccine injured, they don’t care about people that have natural immunity with no known re-infections, they don’t care about the patient autonomy and informed consent, they don’t care about people being fired from their jobs for an experimental injection with no long term studies, they don’t care if the vaccines might be causing variants, they just don’t care. How terrifying that our governments, press, elected officials, medical institutions have taken an active role in this humanitarian crisis, human rights abuse and oppression. Critics are being silenced and there are very few that are willing to provide actual factual data. Thank you Sharyl.

  59. WOW WOW NEVER SEEN SO MANY POST LIKE THIS . ON ONE TOPIC . I POSTEED IT ON TWEETER AND FIXING TO GO BACK ANDPUT IT ON FB . THAT IS WHERE MOST AERE BLOCKED . THANKS FOR THE TRUTH ON THIS WHEN SO MUCH MISLEADING IS GOING ON

  60. TO MANY VIRUSES MOVIES ….HOLLYWEIRD HAS BRAINWASHED THE WORLD They call it the covid 19 vaccine….., But you can still get covid19….. That doesn’t matter …it don’t work ….you must get the shot ….It get rid of one thing and one thing only …..YOUR FREEDOM…..SOMEBODY IF THIS IS NOT THE INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHER BECAUSE TAKE A VACCINE THAT DON’T GET RID OF THE DISEASE ITS MADE FOR ………BUT YOU MUST TAKE IT OR WE WILL DESTROY YOUR LIFE YOU LOSE YOUR JOB WE WILL TAKE YOUR CHILDREN AND YOU CAN’T BUY FOOD .and close your bank accountant. and shut off your credit…….YOU MUST COMPLY …RESITANCE IS FUTILE …..are you seeing this is this real or a nightmare

  61. Suffice to say: It’s time to cut to the chase. We know these non-vaccine prototype drugs cause death and serious adverse reactions. It’s now time to address ‘corruption concerns’ and move forward.

  62. Anthony Fauci is the Elizabeth Holmes of Government Healthcare…!! That little demon is a complete and reckless FRAUD….!! We should shun him….ignore him….cancel him….erase him…!! What he has done to all of us is unspeakably criminal and he should be in prison for the rest of his natural life..!!

  63. Just got this link to a long (and repetitive) article claiming Israel’s Ministry of Health (MoH) had a study initiated in Dec 2021 (a year after the country started vaccinations) which only ran 6 months. The study allegedly proved causality of long-term harm from the vaccines, but it was “buried” and those deemed the Authorities allegedly lied to cover up the results.

    1. Dave H,

      Yes, Steve Kirsch gets down-and-dirty,
      to expose dangers of vaccination pro-
      grams ( except for, say, rabies shots ) :

      From
      Steve
      Kirsch’s
      Substack ( May 11 ) :

      “ When I asked her, Professor Dorit Reiss was unable to locate a credible objective US study showing that ANY vaccine in America is safe to use. In short, the “vaccines are safe” narrative is built on faith in seriously flawed studies. It’s turtles all the way down. ”

      “Executive summary

      “There is a huge flaw in the narrative that nobody really realized existed:

      “The whole ‘vaccines are safe’ narrative for the past 200 years is actually based on an assumption that all the vaccines are safe. There is actually no credible large-scale post-marketing study for any vaccine used in the US today that actually backs up this claim. It’s all based on faith in seriously flawed studies.

      ”There isn’t a credible post-marketing objective epidemiological study for any vaccine in the US. That’s right. Not a single one.

      ”Why isn’t there a study?

      ”It’s not because it isn’t possible. In fact, every state in the US has the ability to do such a study.

      ”It is because the states have never done the necessary studies nor will they expose data needed to allow the public to do the studies. It’s all kept hidden from view.

      ”Will keeping public health data private improve clinical outcomes?

      ”As Dr. Ryan Cole has often said, “You will never find what you don’t look for.”

      “In short, it’s time to call a spade a spade: ’the Emperor has no Clothes.’ It’s turtles…turtles all the way down [[ reference to excellent book about the sketchy history of virology ]].

      “The whole ‘vaccines are safe’ narrative is built on belief and seriously flawed studies, and not on proper objective epidemiological studies which could have been easily done but were not.“

  64. Just saw your most recent update regarding corneal transplant rejections. In it you said there are other papers that deal with other organ transplant rejections. I received a liver transplant. I would like to see these other reports you referred to. Can you give me any guidance on where to find those studies/reports? Thanks.

  65. I will never have another Covid “vaccine.:” The third one was the kicker for me. I rarely get a cold, but I have had two serious colds since April when I had number 4 and an autoimmune condition I have that was under control resurfaced. No thanks.
